Also are there any stretches or movements that anyone would recommend besides the ones Dr.Gross recommends to get the hips functioning better?  Im not working for another 6 weeks so Ive considered getting some professional PT.

this past week or two ive been experiencing pretty bad tailbone pain...so much so that i can no longer relax in the recliner bc it hurts so bad.... its starting to really worry me and gets worse the more i sit.  Im assuming the recovery period that I spent mostly in the recliner put too much pressure on that area but i really have no clue.  The pain is terrible today after a 6 hour drive I made. 


Anyone experience tailbone pain like this from maybe too much sitting?

lol im pretty much talking to myself lately on this thread but ill keep posting in the case that maybe it helps someone who had the same questions or concerns that I did.


The tailbone pain came from my recliner for sure and putting pressure on one spot.  I did some exercises and stretches as well as iced it alot and took hot epsom salt baths.  I also bought a donut pillow to sit on so after a week of treating it aggressively with those things its getting a lot better.


Im at week 10 almost, Im able to do body weight squats but Im still feeling a consistent clunking so im not going to add weight yet, im just sticking with side steps with bands, leg extensions, curls and lower back lifts.  Hopefully in the next month i can but a little weight on the smith machine and do some box squats. Ive been working on my flexibility so i can touch my toes now and put on my shoes pretty easy thank god, but bending down still feels odd.  Im concerned about the clunking and shifting, i guess its getting a bit better but it prolly does it 100 times a day moving around and stuff so that makes me anxious.


lol and i weigh 193, i went into surgery 183, i havent been eating bad but never the less i put on weight so Im going strict keto until i get my weight back down bc im starting to look chubby.

I'm listening!


Are you walking? Getting outside? Getting in the pool?


I think the tailbone story just shows there are all kinds of little surprises.

I think a lot of people just read and don't comment much.  There are hundreds of people that are not members, so they can't post but they read the stories.  I have had many people email me commenting or sending a personal story and mention that they read the posts all the time, but they don't care to post.

So even though you feel alone, there are a lot of eyes watching your story and comments.

Hang in there.  Week 10 is early in your recovery.  Many people have a little break through at 6 weeks, but we are all different in our problems and pains.  Just be patient and things will work out. Don't be too aggressive, you will have plenty of time to be active this summer.  We can't make our bodies heal faster than its own timeline.  When it hurts - don't do it.  Give yourself time to heal.  You can't go by other people's stories.

Good Luck.  I look forward to your future posts on your recovery.
