my tailbone hurts

I cracked my tail bone about 2 months before my TVH so my tailbone hurts too, but probably not for the same reason. I suspect we get treated like a piece of meat on the OR table because when I came out of the anesthesia, my hip joints hurt worse than the incisions. I have arthritis so the rough handling aggravated the joints really badly. Having your legs thrown around may have pulled something or put weird pressure on your tail bone.

I hope it feels better soon

my tailbone hurts

I had the same aching in my lower back and tail bone. I figure I am sitting down more than I am used to post surgery and I am not supporting my back very well. I keep catching myself slouching. Normally my abs support half the weight, but now my back is taking all the work. It is better some days and worse others.

Missharilady, during the surgery they have our bottoms up and heads lower, this is to prevent damage to the bowel and intestines, this position causes it to drop away from the surgery. But yes there are people moving us from one table to the next. I had a lump on the back of my head after the surgery. But I had an LAVH so they also filled me up with air to help make the view clear.

I have a 2" scratch on the small of my back.. i was wondering wher e that came from... Someone probably had 9" nails and was allowed to move me. Ha.
