May I Workout or not?

Now I am recovering from a minor toe surgery because I've been having a nasty infection for years. I got bored and I want to continue my workout routine but I think I am not allowed in order to let the toe heal properly..or maybe I am not right... What do you think ? Should I lift or not?

Yes I thought about that but when I do push ups and a lift for triceps [which name I forgot in English]I have to rely a lot on legs. Still I am afraid because working out the muscles need to heal too and my main priority is my toe because I've been having this for 6-7 years and didn't heal and I had 3 surgeries and it's dangerous because it can spread, or worse cancer [as I heard]

Though the best thing to do id to consult your doctor, from what you are saying only your toe is affected, so it wouldn't be much of a problem to lift weights. I suggest you sit in a chair and then workout because it might have less strain on your toe. But start only if you are very confident and if it is really necessarily. If it were me I wouldn't do so.
