How long until I can work out if I had laparoscopic surgery?

I had two inguinal hernias worked on, and wonder how long until I can work out lightly. Nothing with weight, just bodyweight workouts like pushups, stretches, air squats and all that. It's been 4 days since I got the surgery.

   I know many people will jump the gun and tell me to ask my surgeon or pcp, but they all gave me different answers. (2 weeks, 1 month, 6 weeks) 

 Thanks for the help

    Take the surgeon's estimate. He's the one who knows exactly what he did to you inside. If you choose to deviate from that advice, wait a longer time, not a shorter one.
