Hard knot at top of tail bone

Robin - rlrmac@msn.com

I'm writing in concern of my 19 year old daughter. She has a hard knot at the top of her tail bone which is causing her great pain when sitting, driving and now even standing. She has recently lost about 20 lbs. and is now at a weight of 120 lbs. and only since then has her pain started.

The doctor say's that she may have possibly fractured her tail bone from a slip in the bath tub a couple of years ago that improperly healed, and only now since she has lost weight and padding from her rear has the pain surfaced, with surgery to remove the tail bone being the only option to stop the pain.

I would love for anyone with a simular situation to email me.
