In brief: Weeks

After deep tissue surgery, 6 weeks of restrictions apply.
This does not prevent you from exercising while lying on your back - weights, legs, arms. Walking is not restricted. You can exercise in water after the wound is healed. Pleased to hear you are motivated to stay fit. Physical therapy will be helpful if you have mechanical problems with the area that needed surgery.
