When to Compete Coming Off an Injury?


Hey y'all,
I'm looking for a little guidance. I have been dying to compete in my first power lifting competition for some time now.
current stats:
Height: 6'2"
Age: 24
Estimated DL: 450-500
Estimated BP: 315-330
Estimated Squat:350-??

as a natural lifter I realize that none of these stats are "impressive", but I don't give a shit. I'm worried about my structural integrity.
I am in it for the long haul.
My rugby injury has messed my up muscle recruitment patterns (in particular glute activation), spinal alignment, and has left me looking like Donald Duck.

I want to know if anyone has gone through the same thing and what strategies they have had success with.
thanks in advance
fuck the haters,
