Hip Pain Following Radiation Therapy

I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in january, 2003. I have had 2 surgeries (one for a permanent ostomy), chemotherapy and radiation therapy. For the last few months, my hips have been aching at night and are too painful to touch. Has anyone else experienced hip pain following radiation? Can painful hips and radiation be related? I am an avid bike rider but this has really slowed me down.
