Total Shoulder Replacement, Stop Lifting?

Had my right shoulder replaced in April 2015. The doc said no benching, dips, or military presses. Got my deadlift back to 405. Called him to see if there were limits on the mechanical joint and if so how much weight was safe. His advice was to stop lifting all together. Have any of you had this procedure and if so how are you training? Thanks

I, myself am going in for total shoulder replacement and was asking the same question.
