Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that your father has bursitis of Rt.Hip joint.Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa in the joint and should be treated with antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs.

Please give him broad spectrum antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily .You can get pain killer like Bruphen over the counter,

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.
I think he should recover within 2 weeks.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
