Chrissi, first and foremost, ask your doctor/ surgeon about activity after your surgery before you listen to anyone else! Secondly since yoga is about listening and really hearing what your body is telling you, do what feels safe and painless. Remember in yoga: No pain - no pain.
Secondly, remember you can get a lot out of breathing exercises. If you need some, check out the yoga journal site. Also, believe it or not, combining breathing with imagining your body in the pose can also be very useful.
BTW, I am a 200 hr. RYT (registered yoga teacher) and a yoga wellness coach.
