Hello, I had have hip bursitis in my left hip for nearly 6 years.I just turned 50 and am in good health and lead a very active lifestyle. I have had 2 MRI's, CT Scan, PRP and more rounds of cortisone injections, accupuncture, massage, ART, etc. than I can count it seems. I finally decided that surgery was my last resort and had read my numerous comments how successful it is for most people. I"m 3 weeks post surgery and my pain at night is almost double what it was BEFORE surgery. My Dr. has performed this surgery a handful of times and did say his prior patients took up to 3-6 months to see the relief they were hoping for. Honestly I was doing great post surgery until I started PT and now it's so painful I just dread going to bed. Just curious if anyone that has had the surgery had anything similar? Did it take awhile to feel better after PT started? I started PT one week after surgery and was off crutches about 5 days post surgery. I'm really stressed that my "last" resort may have been a wrong decision. Hopefully someone can offer some encouragement otherwise!
