Continuous since?: If it is a problem ever since the injury have it evaluated by a spine or orthopedic surgeon who has experience with this problem. I have excised many coccyx, ; they have all done well; no returned with complaints. If this is new. Look 4 a different cause or new injury 2 the same. May b triggered by a long car or plane ride, ; now it won't go away.
