Tailbone pain with constipation

Rusty - r_saucer@nortexinfo.net

I was so relieved (?) to hear that I'm not alone. I just had my third child 5 months ago (all c-section births). About a month ago my tailbone started hurting and I also feel constipated (Anyone else have this side effect?).

I'm hesitating on calling the doctor because I know he'll just refer me on to a physical therapist, and I don't have the time nor opportunity for such treatment.

Anyway, my prayers to my fellow pains in the butts.
