Re: Training with full hip replacement

Provided you take your rehab slowly and seriously it shouldn't be a problem.
As a physiotherapist I've seen quite a few people return to all kinds of sport following hip replacements.

Generally speaking don't look to take ukeme for about a year post-op, although you can go back to gentle practice after 3-4 months.

Hope that helps.

P.S. I was training with a good friend of mine on Sunday who had aTHR about 3 years ago. He is fully OK now
