Protruding coccyx

Sarah -

Posted 2013-06-16

Hi, my name is Sarah and since birth I have had a protruding tailbone and an extra vertebra. It has been a pain in the butt (pun intended :) I can not lay flat, sit back comfortably, and lately it seems to be getting bigger because sitting is more uncomfortable. I have always considered surgery, but don't know where to start and scared that it could make me paralyzed since it's dealing with the spine. I fell straight on my back once, it totally jarred my head and wasn't able to move for over an hour.

So I'm looking for any information from anyone who has had the surgery or like me. I live in Sacramento, Ca.
