You have completed 3 months of treatment. Have you started feeling better and gaining weight or are you still loosing weight?. If you are feeling better and improving, you may definitely go to the gym but be gentle and do your exercises gradually. I would recommend that instead you go for walks. But if you are still symptomatic and not gaining weight, then you wait for some more time.
