Can't take the pain anymore

In some ways I am glad to see that I am not the only one. I broken my tail bone 2 years ago, but didn't know it. It is broken in a 90 degree angle. I was playing baseball when a girl run into me on 2nd base. She brought up her knee and kneed my in the bum. It really hurt.

For two years I have been dealing with the pain of sitting, trouble with my bowel movements, pain in my guts, lower back pain.. and now hip pain from sitting wrong. And who knows what other problems are linked to this.

I went and saw an orthopaedic surgeon who said there is nothing you can do about it.. that I was just going to have to learn to live with this. I can't.... he is telling me I can't enjoy life. I love to horse back ride, go on car tips, see a show... and so on.

I am seeing another orthopaedic surgeon for a 2nd opinion. And I not going to take no for an answer. I live in Canada if there is anyone who has some advice for me.. it would be a big help.
