Dis-positioned coccyx?

Hi

I cracked/broke my coccyx when I was 13, I am now 52 and fell down the stairs 2 weeks ago carrying something very large and heavy. I landed on my tail bone which is not very well - padded full force. Bowel and bladder control have been compromised big time, and I thought I was going to drown this morning when I tried to get out of the bath as it hurt so much - I normally shower!

The pain is different to when I was 13 - I could not go through the action of sitting to standing and vice versa then. Should I seek medical help?
