In brief: Comprehensive
Depending upon the type of hip rep.
Surgery, one may begin range of motion and when authorized by surgeon, weight bearing. A therapist will work with you to restore motion, strengthen all muiscle groups needed for the hip joint and ambulation and then will begin balance, ambulatin and endurance exercises. Occupational therapy may be involved. This can go on for up to 4-6 weeks and beyond

In brief: Easy
The recovery is faster and easier than you think.
Exercise to strengthen the hip. Work on balance and gait pattern. Therapy will help you do all the above and make sure you know what you should and should not do.
