Two of my golfing friends have had hip replacements. They were playing again in less than 3 months. Another fellow I sometimes play with had an ankle replaced (this is something pretty new). He went on a golf trip and played 27 holes a day 2 1/2 months later. Had some swelling and was taking pain meds but he played and enjoyed himself.

I've heard the new joints last much longer so if your doctor says its time, get it done. All of my friends say their lives are better now.
