Didn't your doc give you some suggestions? Every surgeon I have spoken to has given me their recommended rehab protocol with a physical therapist. Thats your best bet.

I have found pilates to be a great tool for strengthening the core. Both yoga and pilates are a great introduction to get back into activity.
