Thanks for posting your query.
The epididymo orchitis is a reasonable diagnosis in such cases but by this time it should have been okay which is not the case.
The pain in the testes might be a referred pain due to genitourinary stones or some infection in the abdomen.
Some times tuberculosis of genitourinary system can manifest like this. Abdomen pain may be related to the common cause say a renal calculus.
The hip problem is not likely related to this problem.
You should get a detailed physical examination by a local clinician and get the Urine test and abdominal ultrasound repeated and also get complete blood counts, CRP and the ESR tests done to get a better insight into the problem.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have any follow up queries or doubts, you can forward them for me, and I shall be glad to help you.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
