Default ACL Tear and Surgery

My beagle is 12 years old. She completely tore her cruciate ligament (knee) and she had surgery about a month ago. She has done really well with it, her limp is gone, she's not in pain, very happy it seems.

This is the deal. Post surgery, the dogs are supposed to stay very still and calm. Well, she is pretty calm and lazy naturally but she is getting more and more comfortable and has had a few "incidents" (usually because my 5 yo son left the door open and she has gotten out of her room). She has climbed up the stairs about 3 times, we've caught her jumping up on furniture about 3 times as well, and she's starting to dance for her dinner by standing up on her hind legs only (which is her usual MO).

Has anyone gone through this surgery with a beagle or other dog? I am so worried we have ruined her recovery.

Has anyone else had a successful surgery despite a few incidents like these? As I said, she is not limping...but I worry about delayed issues
