My wife and I have walked the Camino Frances in 2016....wow did we ever love that. Unfortunately some time after I was diagnosed with arthritis in my hip and had anterior hip replacement. It has been 8 months since, 8 months of recovery. I'm doing fine, better every day as time goes by. My big question is can I walk the Camino Frances again in August, 11 months after full hip replacement? Pls advise

Are you asking if someone has done that, or are you asking for a medical opinion? I am sure there are forum members who will be able to share their personal experiences. Only your medical provider can let you know if you are clear, medically, to walk the Camino.

I do hope that your healing continues to go well. The Camino will be there waiting for you no matter how long it takes for proper healing to be completed. :)

Just personal experiences or other pilgrims experiences Davebugg. Having said that I am so very grateful to everyone that has responded to my post. Wow this is a great and truly caring group of Camino perigrinos...your great.

Since my original post I have been walking intermittently, short 2-4 miles per outing, maybe twice a week. This was somewhat painful (6-7) and I felt I needed a day of rest between walks. Well good news now, I just walked on my 2015 Camino Frances training trail yesterday. We slowly became reacquainted after a 3 year separation. Gradually and respectfully we became better friends again. All went well and looking forward to proper training for Camino Portuguese in about four weeks.

Took a hiatus from living large due to hip but, yea baby, I got my mojo back.

Safe trails fellow walkers
