Pain returned

I suffered from coccydynia about two years ago. The doctor asked me to apply heat on the affected region and it helped me a lot. But now the pain has returned.

I can't sit as it makes the pain worse. I cant study because this pain is always on my mind. I just drag myself to the classes. I think I am going to get my coccyx removed surgically.

Reply from Jon Miles:

It's worth trying the other treatments, particularly the injections, first. You might get relief with much less trouble and risk. Though I eventually had success with surgery, I'm glad I tried other things first.
