To answer your original question, the answer is yes. There are many people with similar injuries that after they rehab, are able to continue with similar exercises. Some may even be better at those lifts if the rehab focuses on strengthening areas of weakness or decreased mobility. I think it comes down to your risk v. reward of such movements.
