You are probably concerned about doing something that might trigger lymphedema so I would recommend beginning upper body exercise very carefully, using low weights/few repetitions and looking at the website stepup-speakout for guidelines. Also the LE thread here has lots of gals who can tell you what they find helpful.
If your facility has anyone with knowledge about cancer recovery, it might be worth hiring them as a personal trainer. I like water aerobics the best. My swollen arm gets support and being in the pool is more social than slaving away on a bunch of machines all by yourself!
