Hi, It is quite difficult to say anything precisely without being able to examine you or seeing the extent of damage. However, essentially you should avoid prolonged sitting, lifting heavy objects, bending, twisting and excessive exertion for the first three weeks. It is not like that you restrict all activities but you should gradually increase your physical activities over this period. Please consult your treating doctor to know your condition recovery precisely. Hope this helps.
