In brief: Need to know more

We normally don't classify hip fractures as minor or major, so I am not sure what exactly you are talking about.
If the fracture was deemed non-operative then physical therapy and pain control are usually the way to go. Your orthopedic surgeon should define limitations on your activity based on the specific fracture type
