Post Lumbar Stenosis Surgery

I had severe sciatica and I had Lumbar Stenosis surgery about 2.5 half months ago.  Everything was OK except that my back is stiff and sometimes I have a little pain if I work out.  I am able to swim and exercise lightly, my sciatica is gone.  I have a feeling my stiffness is there because I didn't stretch or do any exercise after the operation.

Does any one have any hints on how to tackle this such heat, cold, motrin exercise to improve my situation.  I am feeling OK but I just want to be better if thats possible.
