    hernia surgery

    Guys, I am about to have surgery to repair 2 hernias I had from competing as a strongman in contests. Doc says I will 4-6 weeks before I can train heavy again. I am a big guy and have worked hard for my size and strength. How much muscle and strength do any of you think I will lose?

    Sorry to hear that bud. Can you train at all just not heavy? I'd say 4-6 weeks shouldn't be that bad. Nothing you couldn't get back in the same amount of time or less. JMO.

    My two cents. Bro you are a veteran. You have muscle memory. Your body won't forget. Worry about your health first and foremost. All of your strength will come back FAST. I guarantee it.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. You guys know how it feels. You work so hard to gain and watching it waste away could be hard!
