In brief: Anything
Patients with an amputation of the leg should concentrate early on strengthening the muscles of the upper extremities.
This will help long term in terms of mobility and maneuverability.

In brief: Depends
It really depends on your physical limitations.
The key is to obtain a properly fitting prosthesis and become active. Choose an activity you may enjoy. Some amputees even compete in olympic events!
