Meniscus Repair

Has anyone else had a medial meniscus repair? I had mine repaired about four months ago. How long did you wait before starting to squat again? This is my third knee surgery so I am trying be as conservative as possible. My doc said I could return to sports activity four months post-op, but I don’t feel anywhere near that point. I have read on some websites to avoid squats for six months following surgery. This information seems to conflict with my doctors advice. What do you guys think? I am eager to get back to my full-body workouts, but not if it’s at the expense of my knee. Any advice is much appreciated.
