I had mine resurfaced in 2006 and I play soccer now. I know someone who ran the marathon 3 months after surgery! Now, I would not advise that, but I think after 6 months you should be able to do a lot of those activities, with no problem. In my experience you would still be gaining strength for up to 1 year after the op. Have fun!
