Ask your surgeon about this because they should know how you're recovering. Usually, but this time, a compression garment isn't needed and you can definitely get back to exercising, but slowly. Don't go crazy!

All these questions are more appropriately addressed to your surgeon, who has been following your recovery. On average, most surgeons would not be requiring compression at this time, and would not pose any restrictions on activity. 

All the best.
