Question Advice needed on fractured coccyx

Fractured my coccyx 3 weeks ago and been off work since. I am due to return to work on Wednesday but still have pain (some days better than others). Work in the hospital and so on my feet most of the day. Anybody offer advice about whether its ok to return at this stage, should I return on lighter duties? Any advice greatly appreciated.

Re: Advice needed on fractured coccyx

I fell on mine about 3 1/2 years ago. Mine was a fall 12' to cement floor landing on mail tailbone. REALLY watch yourself as mine just kept getting worse. One direct steroid injection gave me about a weeks relief, but wore off quickly. Sitting is a real pain even moreso when riding in a car. Check into the injection and see if that will help you longer.
