I suggest orthopedic: and PT consultations and evaluation. Joint pain requires further evaluation and imaging.

Suggest you also see a PMR doc to assess leg length equality, gait patterning, and othr reasons for pain, like referral from the low back

Variies: There are multiple potential considerations. Some related to the hip replacement itself and some related to other potential pain generators. Don’t hesitate to be seen for a thorough evaluation.
