Any advice before surgery?

I started getting pain from my coccyx in November 2005. I did nothing to cause the pain, it just came on. After various treatments including 3 injections I am now on the waiting list to have my coccyx removed.

From my X-rays my surgeon thinks I have fractured my coccyx.

Can anyone give me any advice for anything they would suggest I do prior to surgery plus any advice for things I should do after surgery to help me make sure I have a good recovery from the operation.

Any help would be appreciated.
