This takes some explaining

Jane -

I am now suffering extreme pain from a bruised coccyx and just hope that it heals quickly, as I do not want to remain like this for too long.

A long story involving a pair of new bedroom curtains, a chair and a wrought iron bed. I fell of the chair and impaled myself on the bedstead resulting in damage to my coccyx. Try explaining that to everyone, and I get yer, yer, nod, nod, wink, wink. I can assure you it was not very funny at the time but can now see the funny side.

Can anyone tell me how long this problem with sitting and getting up will last.

I am at present off work but cannot remain so indefinately.
