I'm looking forward to my next session with the physio on Friday. That will be my seventh one. Although, last was a double so maybe it's really my eighth. The physio said it may take up to eleven. I'm still pinning all my hopes on this working.
I do have an appointment with an NHS Pain Consultant on Jan 26th. I suppose I have this route to travel if physio doesn't work. He suggested a caudal nerve block.
However a trauma and orthopaedic consultant has said he does not think this will work as there are no guarantees it will get to the correct area. Easy for him to say, when he does not have my pain. His suggestion was another steroid injection and manipulation under anaesthetic. I've had this several times before though and the last two did nothing. He also suggested the possibility of having it removed. I'm not brave enough for this, and also I don't think my level of pain warrants this; I am not as bad as many coccydynia sufferers.
So if physio does not work I won't know which way to turn, who to listen to, what to do at all. No one understands coccyx pain. No one seems to have a solution.
Physiotherapy just has to work for me.
