Sorry to hear of your problem, but what has the orthopedic doctor suggested for treating you for bursisitis? Are you on meds or pain meds for your condition? Is there any surgical solution possible? And better yet, have you considered getting a second opinion on this diagnosis?
I have severe chronic right hip pain, but mine is the result of severe and permament nerve damage that was caused by faulty radiation treatment in conjunction with having advanced prostate cancer. For me, there is no fix or solution, so I am dealing with some serious level prescription pain meds in order for me to live with the constant pain.
I hope you get a better answer, and more importantly, a solution to ease your pain, you are way too young to be dealing with this. I was 58 when my damage occured.
Good luck to you,
