In brief: Yes

From your question it appears you have had these seen by a retinal specialist.
Yes your risk is a little higher than the average for retinal detachment but it usually takes a solid hit to loosen the retina around these weaker points. You certainly can swim and cardio exercises should be no problem. The greater risk would be if you got in an auto accident on the way to the gym.
