Eighteen months ago I injured my coccyx doing horse riding. Any sort of sitting down was impossible - I tried ball, kneeling stool, everything I could think of. Eventually I found that sitting backwards on my kneeing stool enabled me to work at my computer and totally relieved the pain. Also I got no pain or pins and needles in my legs / knees. It took 6 months to heal properly, but I didn't need any time off work (luckily I work from home anyway).
Two days ago my teenage son landed on his coccyx after over rotating a back somersault on his trampoline. He's doing exactly as I did. In this position he's in no pain and able to continue playing his games on the internet.
It takes a bit of trial end error to get just right and you'll probably need to adjust your stool height. Set your computer up on a coffee table. We both found a feather cushion on the bum pad makes for more comfort. I liked to sit on one as well, but my son prefers it without.
Unconventional, but it works and keeps the boredom at bay.
Hope this helps someone else.
