Nerve conduction tests can be of help.

Detailed Answer:

Hi
Thanks for your query

I'm Dr Sudhir Kumar

I have gone through your query and understand your concern. As you suspected sciatic nerve damage following hip operation, nerve conduction test will be helpful. Mecobalamine is of help. You can take analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. If pain is not relieved by it you can take strong analgesic such as tramadol after consulting your doctor.
I think you should look for cause of pain at operated hip also by x ray of that hip.

You can discuss with your doctor about it.

Hope your query is answered. If you have any clarification then I will be happy to help you.

Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
