I have had pain in my hip joint and groin
Can be due to implant loosening.
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the hip after a replacement can be due to mild implant displacement, fibrosis, or ligament loosening due to any undue stress on the area. Proper diagnosis needs a thorough clinical examination. If the cortisone shot has not helped then it is best to consult an orthopedician for proper treatment.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Can be due to arthritis.
Thanks for writing again.
The pain in the other hip can be due to arthritic changes. If the local cortisone shot has not helped then you can get oral muscle relaxants prescribed and see if ti helps.
Hope my answer is helpful.

It will help in pin pointing the diagnosis.
MRI scan will help in detecting the soft tissue abnormalities like ligament tear, arthritic changes, inflammation or bursitis. It will help in proper diagnosis.
