I know you talked about "mild sitting", but working at a computer can be very bad for your back unless it's been properly set up ergonomically. I'd be researching this before having the surgery.

Re-watching 'Rear Window', get a real telephoto lens and keep your eyes for the birds rather than your neighbour :).

I've been thru it (back surgery) and there's not much to recommend because it's down time and basically a good time for education. Get everything set up ahead of time (laptop, wireless net, etc.) and get a bunch of PDF books on things that interest you. Hope all goes well.

I did my 6 months before I had decent internet access. I used the time to preread textbooks for classes I took later and finished a degree.
I also had an XM radio and became a huge baseball fan. Radio is and always has been a great way to escape the situation by creating the reality and the images in your mind, like reading a novel without the eyestrain.
I became a student of the game and have been glad i did ever since, I am watching the giants and braves play right now. The nuances and unique intricacies of every at bat, every game, every batting order, every series- the more you know the more you find things you had never thought of. People are fans their entire lives and see new things every time they see a game, I see 5 or 6 every game.

thanks for the input, I am nervous about this whole thing as my wife and I run a pizza place, greenhouse and I am a pro dj , so it will be hard to be fully away from it all but I am hoping that the pain will go away and I can be on my feet pain free.

I have XM but overlooked it being by me in bed.. I may do a timelapse with my camera shooting a pic every hour or so for the time I am in bed..

The website will also be a good idea that I can do after I sort my collection of card dumps.

Timelapse? That's cool. Plant a seed of some type of flower in pot beside your bed and do a time lapse of that, daily. I'm told marijuanna grows fast, and you use it for pain control. ; )
