Default Squat recovery

On another thread we got on the topic of squatting multiple times a week. I have never been able to do this, my recovery flat out sucks. Even for upper body, my recovery stinks. I am pretty much sore 24/7. Most of you know I am going through recovery from a surgery right now, and can only really squat. So the question I have, while I am hurt I would like to try and hit some more frequency of lifts. I would like to go one light raw squat day(under 405), and some leg work. Then a few days later on in the week throw on some old briefs and hit a few sets of singles (500-600 range). Even at this point neither one alone is difficult, but together might be a different story. So my question to you guys who squat multiple times a week (or who have done it) what type of recovery stuff do you use? Foam rolling, contrast showers, active stretching, some light cardio, whatever? I am up for suggestions.
