Definitely your surgeon will need to okay it. 3-4 months I believe is the average.
I broke my hip (and leg) in November and he isn't even considering giving me the okay yet. Of course, a broke hip is not the same as a hip replacement, especially because I snapped it off at the neck and shattered by femur, and that takes longer to heal. He told me I was lucky to be riding by next fall but... I don't believe him!
I just got approved for 25% weight on that leg yesterday and that's all the improvement I get for at least another six weeks. Although, that's kinda hard when you have to haul water and grain down to the barn everyday...
Anyhow, fingers crossed for your good news!
