Be careful after you break your tailbone.

There seem to be a lot of people who have broken their tailbones in horseback riding accidents. Just a word of advice, be careful not to do too much too soon. I broke mine in August and it was feeling better until I rode bareback (only walking and only for a bit). It hurt while I was on him because my tailbone was directly over his spine but I ignored it. Anyways, it started really hurting again and now it's been two weeks of pain. Ugg...I want to ride comfortably again. I guess it's back to groundwork for me:(

To be on the safe side I would go and get it checked out by a doctor
To make sure you have not done more damage and resulting in more recovery
Time for you. I have bruised my tail bone years ago while I was helping
