2.5 months out of minor right quad tendon repair surgery

I feel great and much stronger while making steady progress with my physical therapy (held back a month because of COVID). 

My PT Doctor has me doing 7.5lb leg kicks and biking 15min. I've even begun a 2-day routine (chest, then back).

However, I am not doing squats or deadlifts since I'm scared of adding weights too soon.

To anybody that has gone through similar surgery: How long did it take you to incorporate weighted exercises? Did you begin your routine during PT or after completing it?

Thanks in advance.
