In brief: Depends

On the type of surgery and how far you have healed post operatively.
Talk to your surgeon.

In brief: Range of motion

Depending on the exact surgery will determine the best post-op rehab.
Once the surgeon has cleared you to do exercises, it's best to get with a licensed physical therapist in order to optimize the recovery. Range of motion, cycling, balance, and swimming are good places to start, though.
