Has anyone on here had or know of anyone who had a hip replacement surgery that works in EMS? If so how long did it take you to get back to work? Did the surgery make a difference?

Have you checked the weight lifting limit after hip replacement surgery (and even after recovery)? Be sure to ask about it -- I think you are limited to lifting pretty light loads, and to non-impact activities (no running, for example). The risk is that the femoral implant can get pushed down farther into the femur (which is a bad thing).
