Has anybody had a full hip replacement?

My father, uncle, and myself farm in west Tennessee. I’m the young guy and I just had to have my right hip replaced. Does anyone have any tips for farming with a new hip? The weight restriction seems like the biggest change, but climbing on equipment will be hard as well. Any tricks would be greatly appreciated.
