Getting back into the swimming pool, I do require at least four to six weeks following their surgery before submerging your incision underwater. Infection is a very high risk following joint replacement surgery, and we don't want any water to get underneath your wound. Allowing the wound to be sealed at around four to six weeks prior to submerging underwater will decrease your risk of infection.
