Not normal: Groin pain is a very common symptom of hip osteoarthritis and I wonder if you experienced it before hip replacement. I tend to think that your current discomfort is somehow related to the hip joint or surrounding structures. I don't see how diflucan, an antifungal medication, helped pain. See your orthopedic surgeon for evaluation and advice.
