Default Bursitis - Has anybody suffered with it?

So I knelt on a piece of Silica-Gel about a month back, it popped the Bursa Sac and got infected, resulting in me being on crutches for about a week.

Now I've done some research, and it says;

Quote:
Most athletes return to sports in 6- 8 weeks provided that they have achieved appropriate strength
Quote:
The healing time frame of pre-patellar bursitis can vary from 2 to 8 weeks and in some cases even longer than that. Depending on the severity of the injury or the location. If the bursitis occurss near a joint that can be rested easily the healing time will be greatly reduced. On the other hand, if it is in a joint that is regularly used, such as the knee, then this perpetuates and flares the condition making healing more of a lengthy process.
Now I'm the sort of person who will go over things a million times in m head and say it to myself, but when somebody else says it to me that I trust, then I'll listen lol.

Now I know it says it can take up to 8 weeks, and I can squat with weight, run full speed, jump etc with no issues. However, when I kneel I still feel a bit of pain, now I think it's been maybe 5 weeks at most since it happened, so I know it can take time and me working out / hooping is going to delay it slightly, but just wondered if anybody had ever had this in the past?

Bursitis sucks, just wondered if any of you have suffered or do suffer?

Thanks guys, sorry if it seems like I'm talking to myself out loud (figuratively speaking)

I had a full impact knee injury in 1985, ended up with a swollen, painful knee, that required me to be on anti-inflammatories and use a walking stick for a year.

So, I suppose, depending on the extent of the inflammation and the recovery and such, it could take a lot longer than the 6-8 weeks stated above.

They never said outright that it was bursitis that I had, they just called it an inflamed knee, but looking at the symptoms and the injury that sounds about right; I never required surgery. I recollect the skin taking 3 weeks to heal and a whole lot of limping around...being able to take some of the weight off the knee via the stick helped a lot.

It's starting to heal up a bit now, I think it's almost back to normal but I will be careful with it. I really hope it doesn't take much longer, I want to know I'm back to full health!

Thanks for your reply!
