hip replacement & bicycles

I am a strong canidate for a hip replacement, and want to purchase a bicycle.
Is a recumbent bike better (less pressure on the hipjoint) than a traditional bike?

    Do you want to use the bike before or after the surgery? If you use a bike now before surgery you’re just going to grind away at an already really damaged joint…ouch. If for after ther surgery…you won’t be using one for a while so wait and ask your therapist.
