When Daisy was desexed she also really struggled to keep settled and not over do it whilst she had her stitches in. So, instead of having her excert herself with physical exercise, we used mental stimulation to get her to tire herself out.

I taught her new tricks like hi-5, give ten, speak etc etc. This way, she still had something to tire her out but it was overly physical

ETA: I agree with others that keeping him quiet for two weeks is a bit over the top - they need to keep relatively quiet (i.e. not have loads of exercise) whilst their stitches are still in as this prevents scarring and helps them heal faster... stitches come out, from memory, within 7-10 days and by the time you get to day seven most of the healing is done.
