Another suggestion: check out the exercise demos for back exercises on Spark or another source aimed at low back pain. Many Back exercises to decrease low back pain focus on strengthening Core Muscle groups and you are lying down to do them....
Remember that your most effective way to tackle the weight gain though is to really watch your eating! Did you ever adjust your calories to reflect the decreased exercise? If you were very active before, you can probably cut down some there.... While you're healing though, be sure to watch the Nutritional balance and get enough protein & healthy fats. Your body needs that!!
Good Luck---hope your knee heals well, and you are soon back to more activity.
