In brief: Soon
I tell my patients light lift after a week and after two weeks slowly increase to pre surgery levels as long s pain is not present.

In brief: Check w/ surgeon
Every person heals differently and the procedures also may vary.
Also, your "normal lifting" may be different than another's. Ask your surgeon and give specifics of what your "normal" lifting entails.
