How long after the apocalypse can a post-apocalyptic tale take place?

Is it post-apocalyptic if they are still poking about the ruins of millennia ago?

How about if science had rolled on, but irretrievably altered by the changes they made to cope with the disaster and ward off the danger?

hmmm. . . .
