Hello, glad to see you recover from injury and its good that you are willing to return to gym... Well, as you have mentioned few types of exercises here, let's be very assured that the injury is completely healed and you have no pain at all, I am mentioning this because gym exercises will put considerably more amount of stress to joints, ligaments and muscles. However, isometric and stretching exercises are a kind of exercises which has very little role in gaining strength. You can always do it without any doubt in mind and they are not going to hurt any tissue unless overdone or wrongly executed. ..
