Sorry to hear about the surgery, man! I had a disectomy and laminectomy back in 2003, contemplating getting back into some bench only comps. I know personally for me (No, I do not have a fusion) that squats aggravate my back injury bad! So I will have to stay away from them, do air squats and machines to keep my legs strong.

Sorry this doesn't directly answer your question... but hope my answer still helps!
