I have no idea how my tail bone was broken . . . the most painful of all pains I have ever encountered in my whole life. I haven't come to the conclusion of having it removed, however.
I am on anti-inflammatory medication which seems to relieve a great deal of pain. I take Relafen 500 mg. two times a day, that's a 1000 mg per day and this seems to be helping some. If the worst comes to the worst, I'll have it removed. I hope all sufferers of coccyx pain have a restful summer.
