Get another opinion: I can not tell if is due to the total hip or not but would recognize that something is happening and needs clarification. Get another opinion.

2nd Opinion: You should get a second opinion from a hip replacement specialist. While there not be any thing that can be done there are several causes of a popping hip. Ask the doctor to consider instability, it band tightness, and a snapping ileopsoas tendon.

Get another opinion: If it did not used to pop but now it is, something may be wrong with the mechanism. Painful popping may reflect more of a soft tissue source.
