Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good evening, I am Dr Elliot. This is very uncommon as the coccyx is rarely displaced. Do you know what type of fracture you are referring to?
I am very sorry to here, what surgery did you initially have and what has been suggested on this occasion? Have they advised to watch and wait again?
Surgery is uncommon unless pain persists, which is what I assume happened to you the first time, but do you know what type of surgery you had? Did they remove some of the coccyx or fix it with screws/plates
That is quite a journey. I can imagine that has left you worried. Any fall will cause bruising and soft tissue swelling. This can be painful for quite a few weeks. I think the potential of causing the same resume as last time is low.
If you were to start getting worsening sciatica type symptoms, tingling/numbness in the legs, altered sensation which you notice on wiping after using the toilet, then almost certainly you should get someone to examine you.
But in the absence of these I think what you would have caused is a soft tissue injury which will heal on its own
Does that help with your question?
If so, could I ask you kindly rate my response as this allows me to be credited to my answers, thank you
Yes, your original fall I would agree absolutely. However it wouldn’t be the coccyx injury but a higher spinal injury if there was cause equina
Yes I would agree with you
