Frequently Asked Questions

When can I return to work after hip replacement?

The Solution:

You will probably feel ready to go back to work after 3 months or so, but it’s important to be sure that you’re fully rested. Tiredness is one of the main reasons why you might wish to postpone your return to work after hip replacement. Most people find that they are tired for several weeks following surgery and it can affect your ability to concentrate. You need to focus on your rehabilitation, and not let the demands of your job could get in the way of your daily exercises and progress.

When can I drive after hip replacement?


Hip replacement surgery is a major operation and so there are, understandably, restrictions on what you can and can’t do during the healing process. For example, you should avoid driving after hip replacement surgery. Major hip surgery adversely affects reaction times – it is therefore recommended that you refrain from driving for 4-6 weeks.

We recommend that you avoid journeys longer than an hour for at least 6 weeks. This is because your hip will feel uncomfortable and stiff. If you must travel, it’s important that you take regular breaks for about 10-15 minutes.
