Pain 2 years after lumbar fusion

I'm 2 years from having lumbar disc S1-L5/ L5-L4/L4-L3 replaced. The first surgery was thru the front to replace the disc for fusion the next week they went in the back and installed the rods and screws, looks like a scrap yard. Now 2 years I'm having pain that's getting worse it's in my right hip thigh groin area. I can't roll over in bed it hurts so bad also when I'm sitting and get up there is a sharp pain in my hip groin area and leg can't put any weight on my leg have almost fell down. After I manage to stumble for a few steps it gets where I can walk.

I went back to the doctor he said everything looked ok but put me on Voltarn cream and some pills that are not helping!! Has anyone had similar experience or ideas what could be going on?

Thanks, Ron
