Ah mandatory crate rest is so hard! When my Aussie was neutered I was told he needed two weeks of basically no running, jumping, doing stairs or vigorous playing. Well try telling that to my crazy puppy.
I felt so terrible, we went from tons of outdoor playing, running, fetch to inside all the time. Every time he looked at me I could feel the guilt wash over me. BUT as @Grabby said, it was what he needed. And I tried to remind myself of that often. We used a ton of puzzle toys, kongs, frozen kongs, and I also worked on cues like "Watch me" "speak" and "Settle" since he couldn't really go anywhere :p You'll get through it, sending lots of good thoughts your way. :)
