This is up to your discretion; however any continued discomfort in your groin or pelvis area should be investigated. If you continue to experience the iliopsoas tendinitis or bursitis symptoms and have tried the suggested conservative treatments (see conservative treatments for iliopsoas tendinitis or bursitis), it is recommended that you seek professional medical attention. If you experience any of the symptoms noted below it is recommended that you seek immediate attention:
If the fluid continues to return after multiple drainings or the bursa is constantly causing pain to the patient, surgery  to remove the bursa is an option. The minor operation removes the bursa from the elbow and is left to regrow but at a normal size over a period of ten to fourteen days. It is usually done under general anesthetic and has minimal risks. The surgery does not disturb any muscle, ligament, or joint structures. To recover from surgical removal, a splint will be applied to the arm to protect the skin. Exercises will be prescribed to improve range of motion.
