Re: Tailbone pain after Micro D L4/L5
i had a microdisectomy on July 1st and still have the tailbone pain 6 mons later. My doctor said it was from inflammation and that it will go away eventually. He wanted me to take oral prednisone for it but I opted not to. He told me not to sit at all, nor recline, unless flat, as any pressure on that area just inflammes it worst. i am getting better little by little. i rarely have the stabbing pain now, but if I sit even 5 minutes, i hurt for a week, so I don't sit. He too said this was normal, though he thought it would rectify itself in 3 months and it's now 6. FYI - I had a compressed nerve with leg pain. I was never sure what is causing the tailbone pain - if it's inflammation, nerve related, muscle or what.
