Radial shortening, metal plate. weightlifting?

I've just had radial shortening surgery to help with Kienbocks stage 3 condition.

I am wondering whether I will be able to lift on that arm as I am into weightlifting? The doctor says "it's up to you whether you want to take the risk". I have a metal plate in the forearm. It's been 14 days, once I have finished recovery will this affect my ability to lift weights?
