Epidural Gone Wrong

I have degenerative disk and have had many epidurals. I just had one by my new pain mgnt doctor and something went wrong. I need help to find out what happened and if there will be future problems. When I woke up following the injection, my right hip hurt really bad and continues to do so although it has been 5 days now. My hip is sore to touching it. Can anyone tell me why? As I said I’ve had epidural’s about every 3 months for years but this has never happened. I’m to have another one tomorrow by the same doctor. I am very concerned if I should allow him to do another one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
