Weight Training after Knee Replacement

I am 48 years old. Over the last 16 years, I have developed osteoporosis, and I have no cartilage left in my upper hip. I can barely walk, and everyone tells me I should get a total hip replacement ASAP. I would do this, except for one thing-- I have been weightlifting/bodybuilding consistently for the last 29 years; if I undergo either a total hip replacement or a Birmingham Hip Replacement, would I ever be able to return to bodybuilding? If so, how long after surgery should I wait to return to bodybuilding?
