I haven't had a hip replacement but have undergone a Periacetabular Osteotomy (at 24yrs) and found this site Hip Universe
very useful. It's for anyone thinking of/having or had hip surgery, there is a link on the info site to the Hip Universe forum which is full of helpful people willing to answer any questions you may have, and most of all offer empathy and understanding on how you may feel physically and/or mentally.
I don't know what occ therapy aids you have round the home but your local red cross should be able to help with things like a loo seat raiser and frame, grabby stick (think they're really called a helping hand) bath bench etc.
I wish you the very best of luck and a speedy recovery.
link now works
