need some direction lower back/hip pain.

New here and in need of some advice.
In May of last year I got into a car accident and fractured my L1 vertebrae, a lot of it is gone now. I had a 5 level fusion, two rods seven screws. Idk what all they put in or what the pieces are called.

My hips hurt so bad. Its like it gets worse by the day. My sides hurt to the touch where my lower part of my rib cage is and the top part of my hips. I lost an inch of height so I'm not sure if the pain is just because of the lack of space. Ive been reading on here about hip pain and thought I'd just tell my story and see if I can figure this out. My hips also pop daily now. I constantly have to stretch and I'm constantly in pain.
