Has anyone had a herniated lumbar disk, had a microdiscectomy, and successfully returned to powerlifting? Obviously the surgeons are going to advise...No Squats, no deadlift, but leg press is ok. If so, how long after the surgery are you and did you modify your workout?
Additionally, has anyone seen any evidence based studies or research examining re-herniation of the disk after weight resistance exercises? If so, would you please post them?
Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.
