In brief: What surgery
That is definately a question for your surgeon he/she fixed you up, and only the surgeon knows the right time to wait after surgery.
Having said that there are some surgeries after which you should not return to gymnastics. Your surgeon can guide you do not become a couch potato regardless. Do less impact exrcise often.

In brief: That depends on your
Type of spine surgery as guided by your surgeon.
Staying fit is the best way to keep a healthy back but too much of certain extreme positions or loads on your back may need to be avoided or modified.
