I do not have hip pain, just the occasional knee pain, but that goes way back, so I know the bike riding isn't causing it. It might be making it a bit worse, but sometimes it hurts just driving the car, so it's no big deal.
If the seat post is 2-3 inches into the tube will that be sufficient to keep the seat from breaking/falling off? I think I read somewhere that you needed at least 2 inches in the tube, but maybe I'm confusing things.
