In brief: Pain control
I guess pain control with strong analgesics and cushions of all kinds.
If still in bed bars or something to pull while moving in bed ( ask physical therapists). What part of the odyns uncomfortable? Talk to the surgeon in charge.

In brief: Understanding
There is always pain with hip replacements.
However, pain management can help with pain. Even more importantly, i find the more patients understand about what is going on and what is expected, the better patients feel overall.
