In brief: Ask your surgeon as

Factors including age, health, physical & mental condition at time of surgery as well as type & extent of surgery.
Complications or their absence plays a role. Minimally invasive surgery v open surgery makes a difference as does the case if a revision surgery or if it includes a fusion v decompression. The approach of the surgery through the abdomen, chest, back or combination factors in too.
