I have had 2 back surgeries and a partial knee replacement.  The hip replacement was by far the easiest to recover from.  I went to a family wedding 3 weeks after the surgery ( not dancing though) and was back to the jobsites after about 6 weeks.

“Within a few weeks after my hip replacement, I was able to climb stairs without pain. As remarkable as this was, this was just the beginning.”
