T6 - T8 fixation + fusion.. Exercising and gym?

Hello everyone,
In April 2014 I fell down while zip lining.. (Approx 20ft. Height). Doctors put screws in my back T6 - T8 fixation + fusion.
I also had left wrist fracture and had external fixators fixed for it. It's alright now and I'm doing my normal daily activities.
It's been 9months now after my surgery.
I want to hit the gym now and start exercising. Could anyone help me what all exercises I'm restricted to do and what all I should not try so that I won't strain my screws.
I'm skinny.. 63kgs only.. I want to build up muscle and make my arms big (so I could wear T-shirts :p) .
Thanks in advance

Ps: sorry for my bad English

    There is nobody on the forum medically qualified or permitted to advice on exercise this is something you need to discuss with your doctor who knows your medical history and recovery.
