Yeah, I've been there and that really, really hurts. I just had to let it heal on its own. I don't remember how long it took since it was so long ago. I actually fell on a rock. I would suggest an anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen, try not to sit on your behind as much as possible. Lay on your side or maybe try to sit on a pillow or one of those "donuts". Good luck.
