Best wishes on your hip surgery as well as a quick recovery.
Dan's spot on especially with the rehab. I've had both knees and a shoulder in the last 6 years and can tell you from experience that PT is your best friend. It won't be pleasant at first but that's what the pain killers are for but try to use as little of those you can. Stay ahead of the pain so it doesn't take over, it will be shorter than you'd think. I think my wife took them fro a week before not needing them and did very well. Everyone is different but I can tell you I transitioned from Oxy to Tylenol 3 quickly and then stopped altogether. But your PT is going to determine how well you recover and move afterwards. No skimping, no excuses. It's that important and will be over faster than you realize when you look back. Also don't try to over achieve, go at the pace set or you could cause a setback. It's not a race and the docs and PTs know their stuff and will guide you along. Each is different so take advantage of the skill and knowledge. Just a heads up, you be feeling way better real soon.Of all the folks I know who are 'bionic' hip-wise, they all swear by it. Best gift they ever received. A word to the wise however, do your post-op exercises like your life depends on it; your Physio is your new best friend.
Another vote here for the Bosch 1617EVSPK (the EVSPK is the kit with both fixed and plunge bases). It comes with both 1/2" and 1/4" collets so you can use whichever shank size bits you want. At 2 1/4HP it has lots of power for pretty much anything you ask of it.
