Hi Wildflowers:
I am being treated for Trochanteric bursitis right now after total hip replacement last year, this can often be treated successfully without surgery. There are stretching and strengthening excercise programs along with a brief course of anti-inflammatory medications which will usually resolve the problem(this is what my doctor has recommended, I am not to that point as yet) but am doing a series of excersises to help strengthen the large muscle which goes over the bump on the outer edge of your hip bone. I am noticing some relief of pain, but still feel like I'm sitting on a tennis ball. My next appointment is May 16th, so I will continue with these exercises until then.
My doctor is very conservative and will recommend surgery only when everything else has been tried.

So my advice to you would be to submit to surgery only after all options have been tried.

There are many web sites to take a look at: just type in "Trochanteric Bursitis of the hip" and take your pick!!

The best of luck to you!!!
