In need of HELP

Steph -

I recently lost 151 pounds and I've been gradually having tailbone pain. I think it is due to losing the excess "padding" to sit on! It is very painful to sit for any length of time and I cannot lie on my back for any length of time without it causing me pain. I've seen a couple of doctors for this and no help from them at all. They claim there is nothing to do for it.

How come I keep reading about all these people getting their coccyx removed but when I go see the Dr. they treat me as if I'm crazy?? Please help. Anyone can email me.

Thank you so much!
