The journey (pain wise) wasn't too bad, and I managed to choose comfortable seats whenever we sat anywhere.
Back home now and uncomfortable again already, despite being sat on my coccyx cut out cushion.
Tramadol and paracetamol due in half an hour. I didn't take it last night or this morning due to drinking last night and driving today. I reckoned I was better to err on the side of caution. But I definitely have a build up of pain now.
At least I have another week off to get myself ready mentally. I know it's going to be tough going back to work, and won't get cut any slack, and it's bound to be busy in the community in the build up to Christmas.
