Had shoulder surgery, 6 anchors in labrum, surgery went well. Doc said 'Never Again' to return to weight training. Why not if I heal well in 1 yr???

Ask your doctor... You should ask your doctor. Having said that, weight lifting put your shoulder at risk of developing premature wear and arthritis. Shoulder is not a weight bearing joint and is not anatomically designed for that purpose. Putting large loads across your shoulder puts you at risk of further cartilage problems with your shoulder.
