Scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, have pain behind hip radiating to back, no fractures in frontal hip X-ray. Had hip replacement and one revision. Missed anything in the X-ray?

Hello, my history is having one hip replacement and one revision on my Left hip. I have scoliosis and Degenerative disc disease throughout my spine. 10 days ago I developed pain behind my Right (healthy) hip, and it s radiating into my back and sometimes around to the front. It s both sharp pain at times, and also dull spasm type constant pain. I went to the Dr yesterday and I did not have a UTI, and they did a frontal hip xray and no fractures were seen... but they haven t done anything else and I am in intense pain. The pain is in the backside, could they have missed it on the xray?

Dear Sir,

The symptoms that you are giving are that of sciatica and it is mechanical low backache that seems . An MRI will be the best modality to find this out.
