About Me: Female, 40, Windsor, ON, member since Jun 2009
I originally sought out this website for advice and information on pain management. I suffered a severe fall on Christmas morning 2007, crushing my coccyx bone. After months and months of waiting and hoping for healing, all imaging showed significant trauma still to t
[More]he area. The last ditch effort to relieve some of pain was to have surgery to remove the damaged portion of the bone, or at least some of it. Since the surgery, I feel that my pain is worse than before the surgery, and now am having to come to terms with having this ailment for the rest of my life. On a more positive note, since joining the site, I've found some wonderful friends, and I'm so glad to be part of this community:)
back to trusty medhelp for advice and support:)

Great to hear from you! You made my day! I'm struggling with increased pain due to less than adequate pain management - but so may of us are in the same boat in this opiate-phobic climate. I'm so happy to hear that you'll be active again. Sorry you have medication challenges. I get it. Do what you can - more importantly take care of yourself.
Just a note to say you are missed! I hope you'll return. Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas. May God Bless you and yours with Peace, Health and Joy during this Magic Season and in the coming New Year!
