Can I do upper body workouts while recovering from a lower extremity surgery?

I started working out about 4 months ago and found I really loved it! Unfortunately I recently had surgery and have very limited mobility on the left side of my body from the hip down to my knee. Is there any way to just work out the upper to middle parts of my body without having to move anything from the waist down?

I have read that when you use a cane, you should have it on your good leg side but move it forward with your bad leg side. What if I feel that my left leg is weak and it may give out and I am afraid of falling? Can I then use the cane on the left side with that leg instead?

Would a PT be able to help with pain from a trimalleolar fracture?

I am ten days out of surgery for a trimalleolar fracture with displacement, due to severe trauma. One plate, many screws were placed in surgery, and  I am now in a boot with no PT recommended at this point. Would a PT be able to help in any way? Is there anything that can be done?

Could it be from slouching?
