Because of the nature of your injury, you really need to ask your doctor. You may need a referral to a physical therapist; in the mean time, track your nutrition, and focus on maintaining your diet while you heal and recover. We can't responsibly give you any recommendation for exercise because of your needs. A PT can design a program for you once you're cleared for exercise that can help you recover and burn calories safely.
Weight loss happens in the kitchen, not the gym, so you'll need to manage your appetite and your weight with what you eat. Weigh and measure everything, track faithfully, and you should avoid weight gain while you recover.
There's a time for weight loss, and recovering from surgery isn't that time.

Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
