Just this past week I have been having pain in these 2 areas. I'm 8 weeks 3 level fusion the tail bone pain is new!! anyone have any ideas? Went to the surgeon's yesterday he said everything was great and I have started to fuse!



  • thats really good news, re fusion starting allready.

    ive just had a major flare with severe pain and inflammation, which also went to my tailbone and rest of sacrum area, i dont no , for me im thinking i have further damage there as ive had this before many times

    yours may be related to the odd post op pains, what the surgeon say?
    hope it goes soon
    take care
  • thanks flower,

    He said the pain would go away in time. Did not give me any ideas wuy? It's very frustrating! It's really shut me down. I can't even imagine if I was working I would not be able to manage. I guess I still need time to heal.. went to my family doc today and she gave me better pain meds. The crazy thing, it hurts to walk it feels my back is clicking around my hip where they took the bone from. who knows..

    Whats going on with you? are you more comfortable?

  • all coz i drove my car a little further than i should , which is not far anyway, totally sick of this non life

    still waiting for NS , my GP has bin tryiong to contact him but with the hols he was away.....

    started to wonder , ya no , i mite be 80 yrs old by the time they get around to it, but the thing is its very bad , and has been needed doing for a long time , bin in bed 2 yrs , but was sorta my fault coz when i saw NS , he took one look at at MRI and said ILl put you on the surgical list, but it happened so fast , and i hadnt been able to ask questions , so i said no , stupid me , now i have to wait more, and i need several areas fusing so , rather ovwhelming to say the least

    well considering , you are doing really well , all this after op stuff sucks, lisa that graph that was taken from your hip takes time to heal , i no , its hard
    hang in there , you doing really well
    take car hugs
