This really is a loaded question without a great answer. I would #1 ask your surgeon, however I'll give you a few guidelines I usually work with
#1 -- You should be near totally recovery on your first hip. You'll be depending on that leg
#2 - Usually at least 4-6 weeks is a minimum standard to minimize risk of deep vein thrombosis or blood clotting.
#3 - Other medical problems you may have may greatly effect these soft time points.
