How often to see a doc post-op?

I had my latest hip checkup in May 2009. When I asked Dr. Mayo when he wanted to see me again, he said in two years. Which. Is. ... About now.

The thing is, I don't really want to go. My hips feel great and I'm not too excited to make another vacation out of a hip appointment. Come May, I'll be 3 years post-op LPAO and 2½ years RPAO.

Which leads me to my question for all the other post-op hip patients out there. How often do you see a doctor for follow-up care?
