How long will knee bursitis last if i stay off of it? Its not painful or infected, its already been a little over a week. I really want to go running!

Go slow!: Let pain be your guide. Assuming the current conservative treatment is working, slowly start increasing your activity - perhaps just walking, or jogging a short distance. Stop if you get even a "twinge" of pain. Then see how things feel for the next day or so.

Can I have more children if i fractured my sacroilliac joint 17 months ago only just healed also suffer tro hip bursitis painful can I have more child?

Can I have more children if i fractured my sacroilliac joint 17 months ago only just healed also suffer tro hip bursitis painful can I have more child?

Yes, you can: If you did not have any hardware placed after the fracture, you should be fine to progress with a normal pregnancy. If you had hardware, depending on how extensive the injury, you may need to consider c section. While you will be able to have children, you will most likely have increased arthritic pain at the si joint that might be exacerbated during progression of the pregnancy. Hope this helps! ...Read more
