Hip socket ball replacmnt

My dad had slipped and fell on his left side. After taking x-ray it showed a fracture in ball. Doc suggested to do ball replacemnt surgery and a importer part was used. My dad he has diabetes too. My concern is will he be able to walk? Drive vehicle? Do normal thing? Or wil he be disabled for whole life?
