Damn, that's rough man.  I throw my back out sometimes and now use a back brace.  Id say to layoff the heavy lifting and ask your doctor for advice.  My wife works at a doc's office and she says you'll make a full recovery and should be able to be at the same level you were before.....considering you recover without injuring yourself.

Hip replacement surgery is in good shape these days.  Especially if it is elective, meaning that there is no trauma like a broken hip. 

My Mom broke her hip and had huge issues, including three surgeries.

My Uncle just had his replaced, like you, without an initial trauma, and he was back up and going very briefly.

Whatever you do, be sure to do all of the PT, and be serious about it.  It is the difference between you recovering or not.

I really tough on you. Normally it takes around 15 days to get the pain away, but if you can bear the pain then you can go to work way before.

My brother once suffered from this. It should take up to a month before you get freed from the pains. I wish you well.

the hip replacement went well! the immediate relief from that pain made me feel 10 years younger! not back at work for real yet, muscles have to get back into shape.
