Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I do not think it is the problem of spine. I think it is due to hip surgery only. I would recommend you to get x ray of hip joint. This will tell us if there is any problem with second surgery. I would also suggest you to get your blood investigation like ESR, crp. They will tell us if there is any infection.
