I just had a full left hip replacement (9/9/14). I was out of bed and took a few steps on day 3. By day 11 I walked out of the hospital unaided. Day 21 walked half a mile. Day 66 more exercise, more comfort, more normal.
Good luck, the pain for the first 3 days is amazing but gets better very quickly.
Everyone is different. Stephen did amazingly good. But exercise is the key. Even tho it hurts walk walk and walk some more. You have to build up the muscle structure around that new hip. My friend was outside walking in without support in a month. She said the pain was then minimal, compared to what she had before surgery.
