Depends: If it was a traumatic dislocation (i.e. New injury such as a fall), then appropriate period of rest and then pt should resolve the problem. If it occurred with an injury, then i would be concerned about component rotation (femoral and/or tibial) or delayed healing of the medial arthrotomy (cut in tendon/capsule to get into the knee).

Yes: You should be able to, though you may still be in a brace at that point. After being on your feet all day, make sure tou budget 30-60 minutes at the end of the day to elevate and ice.

6-12 weeks: If a hip fracture was repaired, with the intent for the bone to heal, this takes about 6-8 weeks. Recovery from the surgery, overall, takes about 3 months. If a total or partial hip was done, in most cases, bone healing is not needed, though recovery from the surgery still takes about 3 months.
