In brief: Post Operative Care

It would be advisable to communicate with your surgeon before engaging in strenuous activities.
Your surgeon has the most complete knowledge about the details of your operation and is the best person to advise you on any aspects of post-operative care.

In brief: Play it safe

It is best if you contact your surgeon's office since any activities that would place stress on the surgical site might compromise your outcome.
Although the surgeon may not want you to lift weights there may be other activities which may be permitted.
