Hi, In case your father is having pain in hip and there is history of intake of steriods, I think possibility of avascular necrosis of femoral head( hip joint ) should be ruled out. Kindly give painkillers( NSAIDS) and limit his movement. In case it does not help, kindly get X Ray to rule out any abnormality. Hope it helps.
