I broke my leg and home therapy started me off walking with a walker.

I had a hip replacement in July 2015. I was a candidate for the "anterior" replacement. Recovery is so easy and quick with this procedure. No rehab! Within 2 weeks able to do everything except kick to the back and running. Neither of those two rethinks that I do anyway.
Hopefully your procedure went well. More than likely you are doing everything by now.

That depends on you and how quickly you recover.
Good luck with the surgery!

I am going to have a total hip replacement in a month and I was wondering if anyone else had one and how long was it before you could exercise? I haven’t been able to work out for almost 2 years.
