Resume running after 3level/4disc fusion

I have had a 3level/4disc (lowest dics) operation on 25th July 08.
How long after the operation can I expect to begin running again as an exercise, do normal push-ups (not like a female pivoting with knees on the ground).
I have also attempted to do regular sit-ups but am unable to due to the fusion being the lowest four discs, thus my back cannot bend.
I am presently only cycling.
Regards,
Stone

Recovery can take several weeks - but I doubt that you will be able to take up any running again. Go slow on the exercisers - do only those prescribed by your doctor or physiotherapist.
