I walked religiously 2 times a day for a mile starting week 2 after ACDF surgery. I now have developed what I think is hip bursitis from what I read about pain and it's location. I walked alot before surgery so exercise was not new to me. However I'm thinking my stride probably changed after neck surgery and with posture guarding the walking irritated my hip. I'm hoping its not a lumbar disc problem...I have no radiating pain in legs at all ...just on side of hip and back of buttocks...has anyone developed this after ACDF? I'm 11 weeks post op. I really don't want to ask for lumbar mri at this point as it makes sense it's bursitis irritation...trying ice and stretches but i know bursitis can last a while....any feedback or thoughts if it makes sense its irritation from walking??? Thank you.
