Hip replacement is more than just having some metal or plastic components inserted in your body; it is a complex process that requires your full involvement.  This process begins in the hospital after your surgery.  Once it is over and your incisions are fully stitched up, you will be moved to the recovery room and likely remain there for a few hours.  There doctors monitor your vital signs and wait for you to wake up from anesthesia.  They will observe you to see if you are recovering from anesthesia as expected and not experiencing any unexpected symptoms. At this point, you may feel groggy and disoriented, but your pain should be well managed with narcotic painkillers; if it is not, be sure to let doctors know.                                         
At this point you will be moved to a hospital room where you will likely stay for the next 2 to 4 days. The main goals of your hospital stay will be avoiding blood clots and undergoing physical therapy so you can learn how to move around on your new hip.  Blood clots are a serious danger after most major surgeries. When a person is immobile for too long, anti-clotting factors in the blood cannot circulate as they normally do and blood coagulates into solid masses.  These can block arteries in the legs and hips, leading to swelling, pain and other symptoms.  If they migrate to the lungs, brain or heart, they can be fatal. Blood clots can be prevented by moving as much as possible.  Doctors and therapists will direct the patient to do special leg exercises and to begin walking with a walker as soon as possible.  Again, this will not be possible if you are in severe pain from your incision site, so let doctors know.                                                                                                                                                                        
You will also need to let them know immediately if you experience sudden swelling, itching or tingling.  Physical therapy begins as quickly as possible, to get the patient to a basic degree of activity as soon as possible. This can include basic movements such as bending and flexing the hip and knee, done lying down or in a chair, and practice at walking with a walker or crutches. This process can be uncomfortable, but many patients are happy to find that the hip pain for which they were originally being treated has completely disappeared.
You will likely be discharged from the hospital after you are able to walk short distances and do other basic tasks on your own.  By the time you leave, you should have a plan for post-op physical therapy, and hopefully have someone living or staying with you who can help you get around and do daily tasks and drive you around for the next couple of weeks.
