Tobogganing accident

Laurie Smith -

A week ago, our family went on an outing to go tobogganing which ended up as a disaster. I sat in the middle and dislodged going down. I ended up bumping my behind up and down on the seam of the toboggan. I cannot drive to work (40 minutes) without extreme pain nor can I sit for long lengths of time. I get severe pain when standing up from sitting.

Does anyone know if ice or heat is better for this and how long am I expected to suffer discomfort? Is it necessary to see a physician? Also, can anyone recommend this cushion pillow I am hearing about. This pain is unbearable.
