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.
