Where can I get a list of long range complications for hip replacement?

Is there a list of common long range complications after hip replacement? I have had a few sever muscle and or tendon pulls/inflamation that cause quite a bit of pain. Is this a normal complication almost 2 years out from surgery?

These problems may be related to your hip replacement, and are not uncommon. You need to be more specific with regarding the problems you had.
