Question Is exercise harmful to post discectomy?

Hi...it's Lisa again. I've decided to streamline my question, instead of rambling about pain, history, etc. Can anyone tell me of their exercise experience? I am being told no gym workouts after 4 months post discectomy (L5-S1) - two of them, after first one failed. Only short walks. I'm also told that instead of the 6-8 week recovery, this could take two years to fully heal? Does it really? I mistakenly thought of a discectomy as a minor procedure. Yikes. Lisa
