Tailbone pain from Tarlov cysts

Bev - ArtyMc@aol.com

Can't believe ALL the doctors I went to for the past five years or more didn't know anything at all about this. (Tarlov cysts). Most of the doctors I went to just kind of looked at me like, well, you're old, you're overweight, that's all that's wrong with you.

But I can't sit for very long at all any more and finally FINALLY a doctor ran an MRI and found I have inoperable tarlov cysts. So my next trip is to the pain clinic for injections. Anyone know any surgery that works?
