When both hips are replaced

I will be going to a consult in several weeks to discuss replacement of my left hip. I had right hip replaced in 2008. I am curious to hear what experiences others have had in living with two artificial hips. Have you found any unexpected limitations? I don't have serious limitations with my operated hip though I'm sometimes aware of it when I turn in bed. I think my precautions about how to turn and place hip are fairly well ingrained. But, I toss and turn when I sleep so am wondering how two operated hips will affect me.

Anyway, all info would be welcomed.
