Going to the doctor now might be a good idea.  I don’t know if this is something corisone shots might help, but your doctor would.

MsThemeless:  cortisone girl……

I have bursitis in my right hip, plus labral tear and pincer impingement. I have to get surgery in December and I get married in 2 weeks. I am wearing a ballgown partly because my hip is swollen and noticeable so I couldn’t wear a form fitting dress. Thankfully I love ballgowns so that was not an issue.

I did get a couple of cortisone shots throughout the long process of ruling out everything that could be wrong, before figuring out my entire hip is a damn wreck. The cortisone didn’t help as far as the pain goes, but it really helped the swelling. 

just make sure you do it a couple of weeks before the wedding because for one, you will be sore and it isn’t the good kind of sore. and for 2, you want to give it enough time to work its magic.

good luck! It freaking stinks :/

MsThemeless:  I’m an RMT, and massage therapy can work wonders on bursitis, have you tried that? Try to avoid cortizone shots as they’re horrid for joint health, it greatly increases the risk of developing arthritis before you should.

MsThemeless:  My husband had bursitis in his elbow for awhile..he looked like pop eye lol. His was from constantly injuring it while at work. The doc didn’t give him anything or do anything for it..it just went away once he started being more careful and wearing elbow pads. I don’t have any advice other than what worked for my husband. I hope you feel great on your wedding day and get that bursitis under control!
