Hi Sandy,

I hope that you are doing well after your surgery. If I understand you correctly you're looking for some recommendations for safe water exercise given your recent surgery. Once your doc has given you the go ahead to get into the pool and begin exercising again I would start with aqua jogging. It's easier on the shoulder joints than traditional swimming strokes but great for a gentle and effective workout.

 Aqua aerobics classes are also a great choice just be sure to alert the instructor to your recent shoulder surgery.

 Best wishes! :)
