Burning and numbing feeling after surgery

Jen - yenjen6242@yahoo.com

I had my tail bone removed on 18 October 2002 and it is not getting better.

Did anyone experience burning and numbing feeling after the surgery? If so, how long should I expect to feel better? If anyone can give me some ideas on how to get through this, feel free to email me please.



Note from Jon Miles:

It took me 6 weeks after removal of my coccyx before I went back to work part-time, and it normally takes months to a year to recover from the surgery. With this operation, you have to sit on the scar, and the pain of that makes the recovery much slower than for other operations.
