I had the same surgery about 30 years ago, but wasn't riding at the time so I can't answer your question. I know I had the surgery on a Friday and was back to work on Monday. It's not a very invasive surgery so I would assume it won't be long before you're back in the saddle. Best advice is to wait until your F/U with your Dr and go by what he tells you.
On a side note, I had major back surgery 4 weeks ago last Friday. Removed L3 and L4 discs, and fused L3 to L2 and L4 to L3 with titanium screws and a titanium cage. Been a long/slow recovery. The first week was hell and it's been up and down since then. 1 step forward and two steps backwards. Very slow process. The surgery site itself is virtually pain free. The biggest issue now is the muscles in my back and low hips keep knotting up. Doing a lot of icing and using a Tens units. I go in on Tuesday for my post surgery Drs. F/U. Hopefully, he'll prescribe some therapy for the muscles. I can't wait to get back on the bike, but I've got a feeling this summer is pretty much a lost cause at this point.
