Constant pain in groin and hip. Had spondylolisthesis. Any online doctor help me?

hi... i had an operation 10years ago - spondylolisthesis - L4-L5. Now i have constant pain in my right groin and hip area. I cannot lean on my right leg when standing up. Earlier this year i also had left foot on the outer side but it doesnt hurt that often. the groin is painful, and after a while sitting down it hurt to walk and also cannot straighten my back so i wont feel it stretching . i had a check up and because i dont have contact pain and severe,the doctor will be seeing me again in one year followed with a ct scan . Can you help me? Should I consult another doctor or wait? thanks M.M

Thank you for your question.

From the symptoms you have described, the pain may be coming from your spine or the hip.

Pain associated with hip movement that increases on weight bearing is more likely related to hip problems.
Pain associated with tingling, numbness and radiation along the leg is commonly of neurological origin coming from spine.

These are general associations and in your particular case to find out whether the pain is coming from hip or spine a detailed clinical examination is needed. Xray of the pelvis with both hips and spine Xrays will also be helpful.

Wish you the best.
