Having hip revision surgery--how long is your recovery?

In brief: Varies.

Some revision surgeries go just like a primary hip replacement.
Depending on the bone damage, and stability of the revision surgery, you might be looking at 6-12 weeks of no, or partial, weight bearing. Dislocation is slightly more likely, so the hip precautions will be even more important. I would plan on 3 months if it's a full revision, much shorter is possible though.
