Leg pain when she walks

My mom had a stroke about about a year ago or so and she did well in surgery and rehab so they sent her home. All was well for a while the stroke effected her right hand and right leg so she walks with a slight limp. She has recently told me that her leg hurts when she walks even two blocks and that the leg acts like it doesn't want to walk and that it hurts. Should I be concerned? She has quit smoking a short time ago but has gained some weight and recently told me that her cholesterol was high.. I am really worried about my mom and just wondering if maybe her doctor is missing something or if it is just a side effect of the stroke? She is also on bipolar medicine although she had shown no signs of an episode since her stroke which is good. Please help! Thank you for your input
