In brief: Usually not

Unless you job requires prolonged standing or heavy lifting (over 25 pounds) going back to work in a week should be okay.
You can help the doctor determine by how you feel and your knowledge of what the job requires. You may still have a sense of urgency, so the availability of toilet facilities may also detern=mine how soon you return to work.
