In brief: Always ask your MD

There is no simple generic answer for this question.
The answer needs to be individualized to your particular circumstances with regards to the nature and extent of your chemo and surgery. Some sports may indeed be allowed soner than other more aggressive sports. You should definitely have this discussion with your team of treating physicians.

Congratulations on completing your rx--it's great that you're feeling well enough to return to sports.
However, not knowing what you had done, it's impossible to offer practical advice. Check with your oncologist and surgeon just to be sure.
