Hi, my 14 year old daughter is still dealing with trochanter bursitis. She had tried many things, steroid injection, therapy, chiropractor, dry needling, deep tissue massage,etc. With nothing giving her any long-term relief. Her orthopedic doctor is suggesting surgery to go in and remove her bursa and clean up surrounding tissue, her whole area is inflamed/fluid. The dr. It's telling us she is unsure if this will give any relief but hopes a healthy bursa will grow back and her problem solved. 14 year olds don't get this so all doctors she's seen are at a lost, why she has it and why it won't calm down. Does anybody have experience with bursa removal and if it's helped. Any other ideas on how to help this would be appreciated also, as we are at a lost on what to do next.Thank you
