Six weeks ago I underwent an ultrasound guidance injection of bupivacaine and corticosteroid into the region of the right trochanteric bursa. I was informedd that the injection would take 2 - 3 days to "kick in" and "you should be right after about six weeks".....WRONG! The pain in the area of the bursa is worse and I have trouble sleeping. Standing doing housework - cooking, dishes etc - causes shooting pain to thigh and hip. As for walking - 10 metres is the limit! My concern though, is the amount of fluid which was released when the needle was extracted - it literally flooded the surgery bed. Is this a normal reaction to piercing the bursa? I have had four similar injections to my right shoulder AC without the waterworks.
