For 10 weeks I have had a severe pain in my right groin - I have an on/off bladder infection. My Dr keeps telling me
it is referred from my damaged (osteo arthritis)right hip - but my hip pain is different to my groin pain. Always active, I now walk with a walking frame. Thank you. XXXXXXX XXXX

It could be due to bladder infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have chronic UTI due to age related Post Menopausal Urethral Stenosis.

In post menopausal age al the genito urinary organs undergo changes of atrophy due to hormonal changes.

This leads to atrophy Narrowing of Urethral passage (Urethra) which results in to incomplete emptying of the bladder every time when you pass urine and some amount of urine remains in bladder.This stagnated urine is the source of chronic infection giving rise to these symptoms.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical evaluation and get following tests under his guidance.
1) Routine urine test and Urine culture to find out organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.
2) Ultrasound scanning of the urinary system.
3) Endoscopic examination of bladder (Cystoscopy) and Urethral calibration where Urologist will dilate your urethra so that bladder is empted completely every time you pass urine, this will help to prevent infection and pain .This is has to be followed by Clean Self Intermittent Catheterisation at home for 3-6 months

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily .
