Pain

Has anyone else gotten a broken tailbone during childbirth? If so, how long did it take to heal and what kind of pain management did you use? i have had this pain for 3 and a half months and i'm at my wits end. d. gave me pain killers but i refuse to use them while nursing.

      No, but my sister damaged her tailbone in school because someone pulled a chair out from under her and she still has pain issues with it years and years later. :( Have you gone to a chiropractor? There's a special one my husband and daughter have seen who adjusts your atlas (base of your neck) and it has really helped our daughter, who fell down un-carpeted stairs and did something to her tailbone. I'll ask my husband when he gets home what specialty the chiropractor is....hopefully I remember to post back here.

        Have you tried one of those blow up donut pillows to sit on?

        If your doctor knows you are breastfeeding then the pain meds they gave you should be safe for breastfeeding. Many medications are safe so you don't need to suffer.

        I hope you find some relief soon.
