Coccydynia and future children?

Leah - leahjordan@comcast.net

Hi. I gave birth to my son 14 months ago by emergency c-section (general anesthesia) and ended up with coccydynia. I had a hard time diagnosing it since I needed X-rays and couldn't have them while nursing my son. I am finally starting to take care of this and I am getting depressed about the whole thing. I am planning to try several methods for relief including lidaderm and cortisone.

However, my real question relates to a future pregnancy. I am really concerned about getting pregnant again. I don't want to make matters worse. Has anyone experienced pregnancy with coccydynia? I would really appreciate you sharing.

Thanks,

Leah
