In brief: Respect your body
Begin lightly with walking or swimming.
Listen to what your body is telling you, and back off if your body says you're doing too much. Advance as your body allows. By exercising daily and not over doing, you may find you recover more quickly than without the exercise. Good luck.

In brief: This should be fully
Discussed with your surgeon as he knows the extent and type of surgery you had as well as what condition you are in currently.
The surgeon can guide you as to when to advance in your program possibly with the participation of a physical therapist.
