You have to make sure that she isn’t chewing on the stitches. If she is, you would need to get a cone or E-collar from your vet. Those cones can make it hard for rabbits to eat and groom and animals usually hate wearing them, but sometimes they are necessary.

Could you put some kind of ramp against her cage opening so that she doesn’t have to make a jump into and out of it?  Otherwise, do you have some kind of pen, like an exercise pen, where she would stay at floor level?

The only time that you might want to pick her up is once a day to take a quick look at the surgery site. You need to make sure that there isn’t any redness or irritation developing. Pick her up slowly and gently, just long enough to get a look.
