Just heard from the hospital

Jenny - charlie-wimmer@supanet.com

I have suffered with coccyx pain for 5 years after falling down stairs & breaking it. I have been taking painkillers ever since.

I have just had a call from the hospital to say my coccygectomy will be in November. I was terrified!

I looked up this site on the net & am so pleased I did. There are so many positive outcomes here that I am almost (not quite!) looking forwards to it. Just can't imagine having my old life back!

Thanks to all who have left messages & I will keep you informed of my outcome.

By the way, has anyone been operated on by Mr Ali at Rotherham General Hospital (UK)?
