Surgeon: It will depend on how your health status is and if any complications happened during surgery. Usually people recover well in about 2-3 weeks but you should get evaluated by the surgeon to get clearance for lifting weight at work.

Warehouse: This really depends on whether you are having pain or not. If there is no pain then yes. Working in warehouse does not make the situation worse.
