Lifting in general has caused an issue with the blood vessells bursting, in the sense that the lifting spurred them to burst earlier than they would have likely burst on their own. The body doesn't do a very good job of rebuilding them and they are usually weak enough to burst on their own at some point.
The surgeons are fully aware of my lifting and that I compete and lift heavy when called for by my routine. They have not told me to lighten up or to change anything. Not sure how I will react if they ever do tho.
