Need information

Sue -

Hello.. I need some information please!!

I need to know how long it took to feel the pain of a fractured tailbone after injury to it by falling.. My doctor says I would have felt the pain right when I fell, but it took around 3 months to feel the pain. First it was a dull pain, then came to worse with time.

My doctor says the pain increased because my ligaments around that area became inflamed. She said I would have felt the pain from the fracture right away. Has anyone not felt the pain right away when falling on their tailbone?

Please email me at

My name is Sue..thank you.
