For a break at a major joint, always go see a registered/licensed physio-therapist for proper exercise prescription. Then once range of motion and strength are returned maybe a personal trainer to help build up the strength further.
Common sense though for this particular case would be LOW impact (bike, rower, swimming) and to avoid anything weight bearing. (treadmill, elliptical)
What this guy said.
Most MDs recommend no more than 50g of protein per day no matter who you are, are advocates of low fat diets, and they see weight training as a potentially life-threatening hobby.
