Probably ok to...: Diagnosing the causes for backache and groin pain heavily relies on analyzing the degree, duration, interval of pains with their detailed sequence of event in relation to its timing in a day and physical activities, plus physical examination. Ct/mri is merely used to correlate with clinical suspicion, and the findings in ct/mri alone should not be the sole deciding factor for surgical intervention

Consider: If its been determined that the cause of your pain is coming from the hip joint, having a discussion with the surgeon regarding surgical options is a reasonable step toward getting you feeling better and more functional.

Listen to your doc: Sounds like answer has been found for your symptoms. See orthopedic surgeon and get this under control. Maybe a hip replacement is in order.
