I have had bursitis in left hip – started after a Hip Replacement- they claimed I was too active too soon/ probably how I go bursitis. I have had one injection, pool therapy, and therapy with a physical therapist, ice and heat- nothing helps. My last therapist said it felt inflamed and large- she worked on trying to break down the inflammation – But I still have pain ! She mention she had one patient that had the bursa removed- on both sides and was doing great. Does anyone know about having the bursa removed? Thanks

@coco A long time ago, when I first had hip bursitis, a few people mentioned that I should consider a hip replacement so I researched that. From what I read, hip replacements can bring on hip bursitis so your situation is not unusual.

I have found no long-term relief for my bursitis. I never remember to ice it but my sister also has hip bursitis and she is pretty diligent about icing and has said that it does help. I have had physical therapy for it a number of times. I finally just gave up and live with it.

I have also read, on here I believe, that you can have the bursa removed but they do generally grow back so it's not a permanent fix.
