When we asked doctor through the nurse after the exam why he said my husband would always limp even after corrective surgery on his hip, the doctor didn't get back to us.
He fell and broke his hip a few years ago and the doctor pinned his hip together I guess. I know he got pins. He is always in pain and limps, needs a cane. He got physical therapy as described. We saw several doctors. One said the pin is coming out. The last one said it's not coming out but it is retractable, but even if he had surgery to lessen the pain (lessen the pain?), he would always limp. Again, when we asked why he said he would always limp, we got no answer.
