How long prior to being back on the golf course

I just had right hip resurf and was wondering what I am looking at as to when to expect returning to the course - dr is saying 4 months

I had my right hip resurfaced in Dec 09 and was back walking 9 in April.

I think I was back in 8 1/2 weeks, I was going to play 9 holes but I ended up playing 18 holes.  It's sure made golf easier.

All doctors are different in when they allow certain things, Dr. Gross would not allow me on a pedal bike for like 6 months.

Just posting to this topic because golf is a sparse board and maybe someone down the road will be reading this. I posted elsewhere that I hit the range at eight weeks, but I wanted to also note that I just played 105 holes (my earlier calculation was wrong - sorry) of cart golf in three days at just over four months without a single thought about my hip or pain from it. Shoulder is killing though.

I then walked nine holes (par three, though) on the fourth day.

Now I absolutely would not have been able to do this at three months, but I never would have believed I could play that much golf at four months with no repercussions (aside from my shoulder screaming in pain). I had completely quit golf (forever I thought) after the same August golf weekend the prior year because of the resulting pain and disability.
