I dislocated my hip and was back on skis in 3-5 weeks. The doctor told me not to do sports for 8 weeks but he's only a doctor :D I feel if it hurts, definitely stop but if it heals then get back on the slopes! I was sure after my accident that i wouldn't be able to get back on skis this season but i made it happen. Of course if i had felt pain in my hip or was scared of going skiing with it i wouldn't have gotten back but i felt fine. I didn't do anything crazy but i set a goal to myself to get back before the season ended.
