Nowadays it`s routine surgery and material and things getting better.
I told my patients to live as you like but take care of your new hip like it is your wife or motorcycle

If you have high demand on movement and activity i prefer the anterior approach. Wish is more resistent to dislocation.
Uncemented technic and low friction head joint with either highly crosslinked polyetylhen or ceramic liner material in the pelvis with at least 32 mm diameter.

Hip resufacing is more controversial but works fine if you have the right dimensions and bone quality.

I would say the most important thing is the Surgeun, chose the one with a good repetation and experience.

Take time with the rehab thing, everythings want to heal in a good way.

Take care

Well, I'm 10 weeks with my new hip, and it still blows my mind how easy it's been. I have a long way to go to get back to full strength, but I got back on my bike last weekend, and I almost cried it felt so good! No pain at all!
Gonna ride to work tomorrow - first full day of spring
Life is good!
There is no problem so big you can't make it worse

Hip replacement

Thanks to all for this thread. I had my right hip done 4 weeks ago and am trying to figure out how long I have to stay off my Bike.

Congrats on the hip. I would imagine that everyone will have a diferent answer for this so I will chime in with my experience , I waited 3 months. I had a top heavy KLR at the time.

I had hip "resurfacing" and was riding my KLR at five weeks after on each hip. Granted, I didn't do anything hardcore for a while. Back to racing after a year.

Five weeks was probably too soon by most recommendations, but I was sick of not getting to ride.

Three weeks here for my first street ride. I had minimally invasive incision, and it felt great, but that probably was a bit early...
Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

Thanks for the responses they help a lot. My plan is to ride a Bicycle for two weeks and then the Honda 700X. I want to make sure when I stand on my right leg it doesn't buckle.
