Post Hip Replacement Pain

I had a total hip replacement 1 1/2 yrs ago.  I was totally out of pain for 9 months.  Pain started in replaced hip area and through hip, groin and thigh many times down into calf and ankle.  Times when I can't put weight on my leg. Can't sleep well, no position stays comfortable for long. Had steroid injections in spine with temporary relief.  Drs. say slight disc bulge and arthritis in facet joints shouldn't cause this much pain. Going to Chiropractor now and doing slightly better, but he thinks it is the hip surgery that is compromising the nerves. Where is the way out of the chronic pain?  Drs. have put me on all kinds of drugs, Lyrica, antidepressants, pain killers....no help. Sticking with Chiro for now with acupuncture and plant based injections. Still suffering.
