What kind of exercise can you do after temporal lobe surgery and how soon?

I had surgery two weeks ago and the most significant side effects I experience now are headaches, dizziness if I walk around too long and fatigue. From experience, does exercise help? Anything anyone can recommend? Yoga perhaps? If yoga, are there poses to avoid? Any information would be much appreciated! My neurosurgeon says "do whatever feels ok, just don't overdo it."
