Hip bursitis

I have been fighting bursitis in my right hip since January.  Have had two injections and most recently completed 7 weeks of physical therapy.  Had MRI on Monday - with follow up visit next week.  Still have constant pain, but also have sharp pain on inside of hip when I step sideways,etc.  pain will last then in thigh for 3-4 hours.  Biggest challenges are walking any distance, especially uphill, stairs, etc..  Any advice..  Taking anti inflammatory, icing, etc.

Hi there!

Aside rest and anti-inflammatory medications, physiotherapy may be beneficial in symptomatic improvement. Surgical / interventional procedures may be indicated if conservative management fails. I would suggest discussing the management plan in detail with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
