Maybe use a dog trea to get her moveing and place her food father away so she has to move?
What does her surgeon suggest?? They are the only one who knows what was done and what she is ready for at this point.
Following advice from people on a site such as this could be extremely dangerous as none of the people answering these questions are veterinarians, nor do they know how extensive her back surgery was or what is her schedule of exercise from her vet. Doing too much too fast could certainly undo anything they have done surgically and end up causing permanent problems.
Please contact the vet who did the surgery and get a PT plan from them. It has only been ONE week since her surgery, I really wouldn't expect her to be walking at this point anyway, but I, too, have no idea what she should/shouldn't be doing according to her veterinary surgeon.
