Oh geez ._. Definitely one of my most painful injuries, and that's saying something!
I crushed mine about two (three?) years ago when I flew over my bike handle and fell- on my butt- on the curb. Mom didn't believe me when I told her that I thought it was broken though, and didn't have in x-rayed until 2 months later, when I still couldn't sit, or ride, or even run without wanting to cry. Turns out I had some floating pieces AND it had grown wrong, so they had to re-break it (OUCH) to fix it. I was out of the saddle and sitting on my knees for a good 3-4 months after that.
If I'd gotten it fixed properly in the beginning? It probably would of only been 2-3 months. But since I didn't I still have pain when I sit a trot on an especially rough horse, and I get really still and sore easily.
Hoping you'll get feeling better soon! Pillows and Asprin are you friend ;)
