I injured my tailbone when I was pushing Daniel out. It's affecting my ability to get back to exercising. I'm thinking about having it removed, (even though that seems a little extreme) as this is the second time I've broken it (or whatever made that popping sound/feeling and now has resulted in a grinding sensation and quite a bit of pain). I want to be able to have more kids (if we want) without worrying about breaking this bone each time.
So far I've tried a homeopathic remedy, I've been taking Advil, getting acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments, getting kinesio taped (like Olympic volleyball player Kerry Walsh), and I had a massage. This Saturday I finally got an x-ray to see what exactly is going on with all those bones, so I'll find out what that showed tomorrow, hopefully. Next, I'm thinking about going to this physical therapist who was recommended to me who specializes in treating birth injuries and pelvic floor dysfunctions.
As Jaymz said early in this ordeal, "Everybody deserves to have good feelings in their butt!," and so far all I'm feeling is just a real-life, honest-to-God, huge pain in the ass. Until things start feeling much better back there, I am resigned to sleeping on my side, not taking long walks, and always sitting on my doughnut. [Dammit.]
