After hip or knee replacement when can I shower, drive, return to work, and have sex?

I decided to write this short blog on four common questions, topics I’m routinely asked about after someone has a hip or knee surgery. When is it ok to shower and get the incision wet, when it’s safe to drive, when should they plan on returning to work and the what factors drive that timing, and finally when it’s safe to resume sexual activities?

This partially is due to new and improved surgical techniques and prosthetics, as well as better pain management and prevention strategies.
