Rectal discomfort

J Barnard -

I was diagnosed with coccydynia after having a haemorrhoid procedure done 6 months ago. My discomfort is mostly in the rectum, a soreness after bowel movements. I do have a little soreness in the tailbone area.

I am confused about it all because I don't have severe pain in the tail bone area. I sit on a donut because of discomfort to the rectum. I am taking neurontin and an anti-depressant. This is more of an aggravation than pain, I am going back to the doctor next week but would like to have name of someone who deals with coccydynia.
