That's what my surgeon said he prefers and uses on all of his young patients when he can. The ball is ceramic, the liner is a vitamin-E infused HXPE

I find this video to be pretty cool: https://youtu.be/tbRibQsIowM

Biolox Delta: https://www.ceramtec...lox/ball-heads/  

Liner material: http://www.zimmerbio...lyethylene.html

I'm hopeful to get 30+ years out of the ball and liner, would be nice to only need 1 revision.

My surgeon did ceramic on poly as well. I am 41 and he seems to think it should be at least 15 years, probably 18-20. He does posterior approach... As said by a few others, the first two days were hard, and now every day is an improvement. I was told at least 8 weeks before golf, I will probably be more like 11 or so as my holidays start at week 8 and we are heading out for three weeks.
I am now at 2.5 weeks and am using one crutch as I wobble without.

I really only feel the cut now usually. I still can't lie on the right side but it was suggested that actually won't happen until the staples are out. That is happening on Sunday. 

Today was the first day I actually thought how things might be moving forward, not having pain. I think that is the biggest thing... I don't think I realized how much being in the pain for three years actually affected so much. I am looking forward to January and being cleared to do a lot more. There is a small chance of golfing before Xmas, but I think since we are heading out I will wait until I return to actually try.

Long story short, things are literally improving day to day. If you know of anyone debating getting it done, as of right now, I would say do it, it seems to be good so far.
