What causes pain in the hip and shin joints?

My husband has pain in his hip joint and shin on left leg. He s fine sitting or lying down, but if walks a short distance it hurts. Raising his arm over his head causes pain too. He had a severed achilles tendon about July 6th on right leg. He was in a boot with wedges and on crutches Wedges were removed one every four weeks...He then went to a shoe with a little wedge and then shoes with no wedge gradually walking. The pain Started after a long walk. We have tried to use ice, heat, and rest, but it isn t getting better
