hip pain after three years from surgery

Hi, my mom had a hip replacement three yrs ago, she is 55 yrs old. She has had really bad pain in the hip area ever since, it gets inflamed and it has gotten to point where she can barely walk. Doctor that did surgery has done xrays and lots of other tests and says they dont understand why she is having so much pain. She had a Zimmer Wagner Stem replacement. Also, when she had original surgery she ended up with nerve damage, and about a yr ago she had to go back into surgery to remove a screw that was causing paing. I am just desperate to find her help as she is still so young, but pain is causing her to not even want to leave home. Her doctor has pretty much let us know he can do no more for her. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
