HI...not sure, but I hurt mine and it hurt for 2 yrs.....the pain was not as intense as when I first hurt it, but even now 4 yrs later i have to watch how and how long I sit and of course what I sit on.
If you haven't had any breaks in the bones, then you have bruised the bone. Bone bruises are often more painful than an actual break, and they do take quite a while to heal. If the pain persists more than three weeks with no improvement , get you AND your tailbone to the doctor!
