Kayacking With a Hip Replacement

Has anyone ever kayacked with a hip replacement and if so, how do you enter the boat? Surgeon's remarks, it will surpass the 90% angle however not to surpass the 90% angle when cycling hills. Since we've just finished the tour de' france, if floyd comes back riding the alps with the replacement, he'll be over the 90% limit. Several weeks ago, the surgeon moreless corrected himself by saying "those guys will do anything for money" - back to the 90% with kayacking - has anyone had the experience & if so, please post your comments.
