In brief: Not easy
Obviously there are potential complications from a medical point of view.
The recovery for a hip replacement takes several months to decrease pain, increase motion, increase strength and gradually normalize your gait. After this procedure, one can improve for 6-12 months afterward i would suggest doing only one side at a time due to the extensive surgery and recovery.
