Re: Aikido After Hip Replacement

Hi while not in the same situation but similar, I shattered my pelvis in over 10 places around 12 years ago. I didn't have any corrective surgery and have continued to practice aikido, judo and Jiu-Jitsu and can throw and be thrown just as hard as anyone else and don't have any trouble with general mobility or break falls. I do however have to take it easy in the colder months and have a few more aches then when I was younger, however I'm sure that happens to everyone - the only trouble I really have is with side kicks, they are now really uncomfortable to do. Good luck for the future.
