In brief: Try these tips
The life expectancy of a total hip replacement may be extended under favorable circumstances including avoiding impact activities like running, avoiding gainings weight, or loosing excess weight, and limiting the number of cycles the hip goes through.

In brief: Keep weight down
Keep your weight down and muscles around the hip, especially the abductors, strong and flexible.
I recommend exercise at least 3 days per week for my patients.
