Hey bros. I have found very little information from actual powerlifters so I decided to ask this forum to see if anyone have gone through this procedure. If you have gone through a septoplasty surgery (reconstructing/fixing the deviated septum), I am wondering how long the recovery will be before I can return to very intense training. I train very intensely and competitively 7 days a week.
Training is literally my life. 20 rep squats, amrap sets of deadlifts, and frequent maxing on bench with the conjugate method are the norm for me. I destroy my body every day. I am getting ready for a meet and intend to snag a state record squat and deadlift in july. I am wondering the timeline any of you have had with this surgery.
My surgeon is saying I should be good within a week, but I don’t think he understands how hard powerlifters train and the amount of pressure in your body with a brace in a squat or dead. If I cant squat heavy for more than 10 days this surgery is pretty much out of the question as it will not be acceptable to go so long without training hard before the meet. Please give your experience and it will truly be appreciated. Thanks bros.
