In brief: Backsurgery
After back surgery it's always good to check with your surgeon.
At any rate try to remain active and mobile.

In brief: Depends
Definitely depends on the type of surgery performed.
Some back surgeries have little or no restrictions postoperatively. Many have restrictions on physical activities for 6-8 weeks. You should definitely ask your surgeon. Thanks for the question.
