As ever, only a qualified service health professional can give definitive guidence. Generally it depends, I'd imagine on the recovery, likelihood of recurrence, whether the risk of arthritis has increased, the stability and mobility of the joint and whether there are any restrictions.

A hip replacement will unfortunately be a significant issue with regards meeting the medical standard for entry.
