Open hip bursectomy
Naya66 posted:
I have chronic bursitis in both hips for 10 years now. The pain is chronic and I struggle to sleep each night. Some nights are worse than others and I lay there crying. I have recently tried chiropractor, therapy, dry needling and so many shots I can no longer count. I next option from my doctor is to operate and remove the bursa. This however is only a 50% chance that I may find relief. If you have had a bursectomy please let me how yours worked out for you. Any advice would help!
