In brief: Depends

Depends on how severe the problem is in your spine, and whether the laminectomy is fixing the only problem, or fixing part of the problem. People with simple disc herniations can return to full function without restrictions.
If there is extensive arthritis, that may not be possible, your surgeon should be able to look at your MRI and give you a recommendation.
