When will I feel completely recovered after hip replacement surgery?

It is normal for your recovery to take between 3 to 6 months. After this time, you should feel like your usual self again and be able to partake in hobbies and sports as you did before the hip replacement surgery. We, therefore, advise that you plan ahead.

Please ensure to discuss any specific sports or hobbies with your surgeon prior to your surgery. If you have a major event coming up such as a wedding, plan your surgery at least 6 months before if possible. Patients heal at different speeds, so it's important to be realistic in your expectations and not push yourself before you're ready.
