I think it would be a great idea for you to get some sessions with a LANA-certified PT before and shortly after your surgery. (My hospital automatically scheduled these for me, but you could get a referral from your doctor if you need to.) With his/her guidance you can do safe exercises while you're healing and know when it will be safe to move to the more strenuous exercise. You're definitely doing the right thing thinking about this before your surgery, good luck to you!
