I was told a 12-18 month wait for hip #1; then I'd go back to the bottom of the list and wait another 12-18 months for #2. That's why I chose Guadalahara for #1.
My reasoning, as anyone knows who is in need of this kind of surgery: as pain increases and mobility decreases, there is less strength and muscle mass remaining with which to do the necessary rehab.
I was back teaching yoga six months after #2 (my Canadian hip, as I call it). I'd not been able to teach for two years.
Yes, it meant ransacking my pitifully small RRSP fund, but I believe my recovery was quicker and more complete because I didn't wait out those 2-3 years.
