Every patient is different, every surgeon is different. Getting a list of do's and don'ts and learning limitation is something that you should review with your surgeon who know you and knows what precisely was done. What I tell my patients may be entirely inappropriate advice to you.
Most patients at six weeks are getting back toward full normal activities and pretty much all are back to work. Recovering completely from a major operation takes longer--usually about 3 months or so.
Thanks, best wishes.
