In brief: Depends, of course
Open bypass surgery usually requires 2-3 days in the hospital to regain adequate activity to go home, then again a slow return to regular activity in 2-4 weeks.
Air travel should be ok within 2 weeks after surgery, depending on one's activity level.

In brief: Soon
Preferably when pain, and swelling are gone.
Sitting scrunched up is not ideal . Remember to walk about and stretch and flex and extend. If you we're given support stockings you may wish to use.
