Tailbone update

I've noticed that the pain hasn't changed much at all in the past week or
so, but starting yesterday and going into today, the pain has been sharper
and more annoying, not really as much as when I first hurt myself but
definitely more than the past several weeks. The pain meds have been a
regular thing and I am usually taking 2 or 3 pills in a day just to make my
work day managable. I think I should call the doctor and set up a second
follow up appointment. I'm going to need more pain meds soon.

Dude, are you sitting on the inflatable donut ring? You need to treat that bone like a king for a while.

My advice, when you stand up, do so very carefully, trying to not stress that general area at all. Sit on the donut. Take it easy. It will feel better soon. But yeah, if you're having bad pain, see the doctor, make sure it's not setting crooked.

I bought a foam donut ring because the inflatable one popped. I've been trying to love my bottom as much as possible.

I sit all day at work, though. The chairs are hard and uncomfortable.

Tailbones take a long time to heal. You should definately go back to the Dr for more pain meds. Milk it for all its worth, if nothing else ;)

Yes in fact, mending activity is sometimes seen on bones for 2 years after they break. I'm just now through year #1 of my busted tailbone.
