No docs will ever say anything but after successfully enduring spine surgery in 1995 now hip and I’m squatting . You can do anything you want to . Just be smart be patient. In the world of bodybuilding there’s ton of people got back . In martial arts guys still returning to former. You just got to make sure the procedure is set properly then carefully and CONSISTENTLY train methodically . 20-30 years after my spine I still modify my post rehab as part of my workout . If I don’t I feel it . Everyone here been bodybuilding long time or if your novice just you need to connect with yourself . Why sometimes I don’t agree with asking too many people certain questions when only you can answer most questions. While yes we all built like human beings we all have slightly different genetics , different lifestyles, we are inspired and motivated by totally different means . Never take what others say as law . You decide . We use our brains to build . It’s the mind that determine how far you can take yourself. You are your greatest teacher . No such thing as a mistake , they are series of lessons . Learn from yourselfI feel for you. I'm in my 60's and still doing it. I'm curious about what your doctor has to say about squatting after hip replacement surgery. I'm under the impression that those joints have a wear out life even if one doesn't do heavy lifting. i would think heavy weights would just cause them to wear out and the need for replacement that much quicker.
