In brief: Yes

Aqua therapy can be a very effective post operative treatment for allowing reduced weight bearing while still exercising joints and muscles in their normal physiologic activities.

In brief: Yes in moderation

I am assuming that you had a lumbar surgery and were referred for aquatic therapy for rehab.

In brief: Possibly

Check with your surgeon first.
Aqua therapy is very effective but your wounds have to be closed and healed. Ususually aqua therapy is a modality recommended 3 months or more after surgery.
