Pain after childbirth.

Jennifer Johnson (taken off net)

I had a baby 15 months ago and had severe pain in my tailbone afterwards, which I understand is not that uncommon. Eight months after the baby as born I received a cortizone shot in my tailbone and was told it was not broken and that the shot would take care of the irritation. I am still in quite a bit of pain when I sit and I can't seem to find anyone who has heard of it lasting this long. Is there anything I can do to speed up the recovery of my sore butt? (I have tried the dougnut pillow)
