Letter to Dr Rovner

October 3, 2004

Dear Dr. Rovner,

I want to thank you for helping to relieve my tailbone pain. I have been diagnosed with coccydynia and a coccyx fracture 3 years ago after falling during a ski trip. I have gone to 4 doctors, and I have been treated with multiple injections, and donut cushions without any success. It wasn't until after I underwent a coccygectomy that my tailbone pain was relieved. The surgery really worked and I am finally pain free.

Thank you again for your help.
