Health requirements: should I be worried about having a previous hip replacement?

Recommended Posts

I'm having a sudden panic about this, any shared experience would be appreciated:

 

I had a hip replacement after a car accident 4 years ago. Totally functional now.

I've suddenly realised this may exclude me form PR if they assess me as posing "significant healthcare and community service costs"

 

Has anyone been granted a PR visa despite having had a joint (knee or hip I guess) replacement previously??

In case anyone else has a panic about this - looks like I passed (well, it now says 'Clearance provided', so I hope so). Phew!
