After surgery, which is better; to walk with a limp, or to walk with a cane and no limp?

(6 weeks after hip replacement)

My surgeon says walk without cane, my physical therapists say walk with a cane until my hip and leg is strong enough not to limp.

I am afraid to get in a habit of walking with a limp. I am 65 years old and an avid racquetball player.
