The only Dr who can answer this best is the one who did the surgery. they can tell you how many folks like u they have operated using the technique they used on who then do weight lifting like you describe and had to have another operation.

wait till about 3 months post op before doing what you did before. Also see your surgeon for his advice. If the surgery succeeded you will be able to do what you did before.
