Recurrent Hip Bursitis

I have had chronic hip burisitis in my right hip for 2 years now. I have had a total of 6 cortisone injections, which help temporarily. My last injection was 10 days ago and it only gave me a day of relief.
At what point will they actually remove the bursa?
Does anybody have any stretches or suggestions that might improve it? I am on my feet all day and take Tramadol for the pain, but it really aches

Re: Recurrent Hip Bursitis

Have you had an x-ray to make sure it is not arthritis in your hip? Repeated Cortisone injections into the hip joint can cause even more problems.

It is my understanding if you remove the bursa you will have bone on bone in the hip and that is very painful.

I guess I would get a second opinion from another rheumatologist.
