In brief: 8 to 12 weeks

Bone tissue takes awhile to heal .
The sacrum may heal fine if there was a fracture that would be confirmed by a MRI if acute or at least documented that it occurred by bone scan that may still reveal a fracture that occurred but has healed for up to 1-2 years. If the injury was axial ie fall on buttocks, there can be a coccyx or disc issue. These fractures can also be due to osteoporosis
