Hi Mandie
Bursitis of the hip means that there is inflammation in the fluid sac surrounding the tendons and muscles near the hip joint. his can be treated with non-steroid anti inflammatory medications or possibly a cortisone injection in the joint depending on the severity of your pain.
Regarding the needles and pins in your feet following surgery - that is something you need to discuss with the surgeon who performed the operation.
