Going on two weeks ago, I fell (sat down hard) on the ice which was underlaid by rocks. I had a cervcal fusion 2005 and a lumbar fusion 2006. I am currently under the care of pain management for continued problems with my neck. I recently was advised that I will probably need more surgery on my neck and my lumbar spine. So, I fell and didn't think too much of it but it hurt like heck. Now two weeks later, it still hurts just the same. I hate to run for an xray or MRI since I have had so many of them and I already know I probably will need more surgery...does anyone have any advice for a coccyx injury. Sitting is horrendus, standing is the same and only lying down or walking for short periods of time seem to give relief. I work full time but this has really slowed me down. Any suggestions?
