NO care = longtime: Bursitis is about alignment of the hip and leg or arm/hand/elbow/shoulder. The best therapy is myofascial tissue release therapy is on a spectrum from simple stretching, yoga, massage, chiro adjustments, john f. Barnes unwinding, hands-on manipulations, acupuncture, gunn-ims, dry needling to finally travell trigger point injections.

No: It can usually be effectively treated with conservative measures.. If all conservative therapies fail, the bursa can be surgically removed.

A couple of days: It usually resolves quickly with a local steroid injection. If it perists, it may be secondary to low back issues and not a true bursitis.
