Physio and exercise with l5-s1 prolapse

So I'm 23 and 2 months ago I prolapsed 7mm a disk in l5-s1 2 months back.
I seen the specialist last week and she said that I have started to make a good recovery as my sciatica as practically gone except a couple of pins and needles fist step in the morning.
She referred be to a physio as she thinks this is the best plan of attack. I'm a avid golfer so my first question was when can I play golf again as I am looking for a career out of it . She said that I could start getting into it now but take it slowly. So this week I've been playing a couple of shots and yesterday I played 9 shot 2 under with no pain during the swing just a little tight getting into position to play. I'm so happy to get back to the sport I love.
However I also love weightlifting . I know I will never train the same way again however I was wondering if I could go back or when I could go back , and to what exercises? E.g would press ups , pull ups , planks be ok

I would ask my physio but in the uk the nhs is slow and won't see him or her for a month
