Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

You need to consult a Physiotherapist who can advice exercises which help in maintaining the body weight.

Also he would help you recover from complications of immobilization due to surgery.

Do maintain a balanced diet when there is less energy spent then the calorie intake also should be lowered.

Wish you good health.
