In brief: Depends

The most important thing is the type of surgery you experienced.
Was it a posterior surgery- a true laminectomy? How many levels were operated on? What is your job? The only person who can answer your question is your surgeon. Give his office a call and see what he says. You don't want to go back too soon and risk a failure of your surgery.
