Hip Replacement - Are ligaments repaired?

Hi Erika
I consulted with an Orthopedic surgeon a couple of years ago. At that time (and up until recently) I was trying to put off the surgery as long as possible, as I enjoy playing soccer throughout the year. He basically told me to come see him again when I've decided to hang up my soccer shoes. I have a GP app't coming up shortly and I'll be requesting to be put on the THR waiting list then. Although, depending on how things go after the surgery and recovery time, I may still try to play a bit of soccer. I know it's not advised, but I'm playing with a senior's league, so it's not real competitive and I don't have to do much running. As it is, I'm out there "running" around like I've got a wooden leg. But like I say, we'll see how I'm feeling after I'm recovered. My other sports passion is golf, which I know can be played after the THR, but unfortunately, living in Yukon, that only goes for about five months of the year.
Cheers
Ross

@yukoner777 I have to laugh. My husband is a soccer player but had knee surgery last year. Now the other knee is bothering him but he wants to play soccer this spring. I'm betting will have surgery on the other knee next winter. No judgement. I get it. When you love something, you love something.
