Nervous About Getting Tailbone Removed

I must admit I’m pretty nervous about having my tailbone, also known as the coccyx, removed on December 4th.

The biggest risk of the surgery is infection due to the location of the incision. Its hard to find much information related to coccygectomy procedures since its fairly rare. But what information Ive found has yielded some useful information.

Ive purchased a walker from and a padded raised toilet seat. Ive also purchased Hibicleanse, which I still use has a body wash to help prevent infection.

I will definitely post more information about this journey in the hopes that I can help someone else going through this painful disease of coccydenia (pain in the coccyx).
