    It could be muscular especially since the gait (normal movement in walking and standing) is impaired and therefore straining the muscles and its tendons. However, the person’s age and history brings many other possibilities into the picture here so there is no definitive answer that can be provided through an online platform such as this. It is possible that this pain may be stemming from a nerve, joint or even the bone itself. It is important to discuss this thoroughly with the supervising doctor and get more clarity.
