When I stand up from sitting, it is almost unbearable

Hi my name is Kate. I fell on stairs (the edge) March 2005.I hit right at the top of my butt crack (sorry) for lack of a better word. I had a HUGE bruise for about a month. For about three months no matter what I did (sit, stand, lay, sit) it was excruciating.

I never went and got it checked out, because like everyone else said everyone told me "there's nothing anyone can do". It is now Aug. 2006 and it STILL hurts. When I sit it's painful, but when I stand up from sitting, it is almost unbearable.

Does it sound like I broke it or what? Should I try going to a doctor? Or is it just too late?
