8 months ago I had a spinal fusion L4/L5/S1 after 4 years of pain and various steroid procedures, Radio Frequency procedures, epidurals etc.
I have been recovering well and despite still have numbness in my shin and my toes going numb after ten minutes of walking I'm a hell of a lot better than I was before surgery. However this week I have developed coccyx (tail bone) pain from out of nowhere.... I have been very worried as I have had no fall or bump and its painful to touch as if bruised. I have read that this is common and I'm relieved at that however I'm now wndering if this will be permanent ? Has anyone else suffered with this and if so how long for, I'm not back to see my surgeon until Feb 14th and at the minute I can't bear to sit correctly on a chair ! It's affecting driving and general mobility. Advice please ! Thanks : Joanne.
