    My wife finds sitting more painful. Walking gently is actually beneficial to her bursitis. I think the steroids have helped both sides, she has not complained of discomfort half as much since the injections. It was said it would take about 10 days to see improvement. She is nearly at a month for the first injection, her mobility is improving, but it hasnt been as rapid compared to the second injection in the other hip, where she felt much better within a week. Currently she has physio and these basic exercises to do.

    Here's a delicate question: do you think your hip bursitis has been caused by your hygiene habits in the bathroom? I have realised that using my right hand means I cant my pelvis and place all my weight on my left hip on the hard seat, which becomes chronically sore to the extent that I worry about arthritis. Since I broke my right clavicle I've been sitting straight on the seat and using my left hand for hygiene and the bursitis has cleared up completely.

    Interesting, I suppose it is possible, I am still on the heavy side and when I put weight to one side it is painful...

    The only plus is I think the tablets are working, still painful but not as bad as first .. :smile: I am hoping I an get out on the bike this weekend ...

    Bit slow... Bloody painful on the way out, but eased a lot on the way back, so hopefully if I do the same tomorrow and Monday it will help .. I HOPE!

    Well done and nice pics but....
    I wouldn't cycle every day if you still have pain or it'll re-inflame. Have a rest day!
    Hope you put the frozen peas on it as soon as you got home to reduce any inflammation that you've caused. And stretched / did your exercises.
    Frustrating but necessary with soft tissue inflammation unfortunately!

    It is actually not too bad at the minute, hurt more when I just walked round the shop lol .... May have a rest tomorrow morning as they forecast rain first thing and just go Monday ..

    I live on the Yorkshire Wolds and it is nice early morning around the country lanes of the village, very little traffic, if any and you get to see the wildlife, rabbits, horses, sheep and deer... very nice at 6.30 in a morning..

    This was a couple of weekends ago..

    It was painful when I started riding but seemed to ease a little as I got going, so maybe the exercise helped lol... not too bad at the minute because I am just sitting in a comfortable chair ;)

    As I say rain tomorrow so may be forced to have a rest, me and rain don't mix lol...

    Well it looks like the tablets have started to work well now (fingers crossed) :smile:

    The pain is a lot easier now, I can walks better and stand for longer although it does feel like a stab in my leg every so often.. and the top feels numb... but...

    I have managed to do two 30 mins on the treadmill at the gym and a moderate walking pass up hill and it went OK...

    Still have another week of tablets so hopefully it will go well...
