Hips aren't my specialty, but this sounds billable. Global post-op care is for routine issues associated with a surgery: wound care, minor infections, minor complications (i.e. minor issues related diabetes), suture removal, etc. Think all the care necessary for treatment of a routine procedure.
When the problem becomes "not-routine", then you can bill for them.
