In brief: Do what doctor says
Follow the instructions of your surgeon.
It all depends on the surgery, healing time, and your unique healing/health. This is a really important time to follow directions.

In brief: Same day
As long as there was no dural tear leading to a spinal fluid leak that needed to be repaired, as soon as you feel comfortable enough to do so which should be the day of surgery
