Hello and welcome to the forum.  So, it's always best to check in with the surgeon that performed your surgery.  Have you been wearing a back brace since the surgery and did you do physical therapy?  Normally, patients are healed by 3 month after surgery but you want to make sure you have not injured yourself further.  I would touch base with your doctor.
