Tremors associated with post op hip replacement

Patient : Hello, my father recently had hip replacement surgery and has been suffering from tremors, usually during the night or late evening. It is a very heavy trembling and all I've read is that it is common right after surgery, but it has already been a week and it is ongoing. Should it be a concern or is it an after effect on spinal anesthesia?
Symptoms:  Symptoms: Trembling, Tremors, Shivering, not terrible like a seizure but moderate like its very cold
