I don't think there's anything more you can say than sorry, I won't be up for it.

Tell her that you would definitely like to see her after you're home from surgery, and that you appreciate her understanding.

I would just tell her that you love her but that you won't be up to having company this weekend. Maybe suggest she come down in a few weeks instead if you are worried she will feel brushed off.

I'm a big fan of the truth. "I'll let you know as soon as I'm up for visitors." That should do it. Good luck!

You can always blame the doctor! "The surgeon said no visitors for at least a week so I can get enough rest."

Blame it on the doctor - tell her that he has said he wants you to resting, no exertion and no visitors for at least 7-10 days.  Minimize risk of infection....blah, blah, blah :-)
