Hi my name is Lucille. Last year I fell from standing on a swing which has affected my coccyx. Everytime I sit down for too long I find it hard to get up and it is really painful. I am only thirteen and I am scared it will stunt my growth. Please I need help.

My mum thinks it is not serious but I am taking it serious since it has not stopped hurting from last year. Please can you answer this question for me: Would it stunt my growth? Is it a serious matter?
