    Is it safe to swim after hip replacement therapy?

    Hey!! I'm not a professional swimmer but swimming is one of my favorite hobbies. It's been a month since I swim because of hip pain. I'm planning to undergo hip replacement physiotherapy from a clinic in Mississauga asap. I haven't consulted the therapist so far. I'm scared to go under the knife so I think physiotherapy will be my choice. The only thing I'm worried about is my swimming. Is it possible to swim after going through hip replacement therapy? Has anyone here been in this situation? How long after the procedure were you able to swim? My friends and me have planned to go for a short vacation in the month of March to Long Beach in British Columbia. Will I be able to swim by the time?
