Welcome! If it's not too much trouble, it would be appreciated if you could make an attempt to use proper (or at least better) punctuational and capitalization. It makes reading your posts much easier and will probably lead you to getting better information from any questions you might have.

You have a great bike to start with so nothing to worry about there, hopefully you have some people to ride with as well. As far as your hip surgery, I would go over to the "rider down" section of the forum and post any questions or concerns there. I'm sure there will be people with some insight on what you can expect. Hope you heal up fast and have fun out there!

No worries, me too! I have the most trouble when I need to try and give someone directions to something.

You should probably post the obligatory picture of your new ride too. You'll get those requests soon enough!

Helmet (obviously), a bike multi tool, spare tubes, gloves, way to carry water (I prefer Camelbak type methods), patch kit, if you're getting 10% off, it's a great time to consider a bike rack if you need one. Maybe come cycling clothing such as bicycling shorts (prevent chafing) and jerseys.

Padded shorts are the best I don't ride without them. Good advice on the multi tool and the patch kit make sure you look at some how to vids on youtube for cleaning and caring for a mtb. Glasses are good as well so you don't get mud in the eyes.
