Debilitating hip pain after back surgery

Since 11/28/16, my husband has had 8 lazer surgeries on his back L4,L5,S1.  He had a partial laminotomy, a partial discectomy and a partial framinotomy.  He was feeling really good but @ a week ago he felt a pop and now he is having excruciating hip pain and trouble walking. Up until then he never needed to take pain medication but now the pain is so great he needs to even though they don't help much. What ever that pop was it has changed his life unless the Dr can find out what is going on. The Dr has tried steroids with out much relief.  Any one have a similar experience and what helped with the pain w\o using narcotics.  TY.

    I've had one lumbar surgery with months of PT after that. Pain radiated in the whole area. Since then I have had countless procedures in the lumbar and sacrum area. Sometimes, my hip will hurt a lot just out of the blue. This worried me since I have never had hip issues. The hip pain has always went away on it's own. It took a few weeks on some occasions.
