Cracked tailbone after delivering baby. Have lower abdominal pain. Ultrasound report normal. Reason?

Hi, I had a baby 5 months ago and they told me I had cracked my tailbone. Horrible pain for the first week and then nothing until 2 months ago... I started getting a lot of watery milky vaginal discharge . I get a lot of very low abdominal cramping and back aches and tailbone pressure. I wasn t eating very healthy when it first started. I have switched to a lot more healthy foods for the last week. The pain and discharge continues and now I am getting extreme muscle weakness . I am a mom to 4 little ones under 5 and its very hard to get through a day with these symptoms. I have no stds and a clean pap as of last month. Abdominal ultrasound appeared normal except for tiny follicles or cysts on both ovaries. Was told this is not concerning. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

hi there, coccygeal fractures or tailbone fractures are associated with childbirth and usually are self healing and do not require any treatment. You could use a special type of cushion called doughnut cushion to sit on and that will help relieve pain besides taking anti inflammatory pain killers.Five delivaries in five years can take quite a toll on your body and so I would suggest you to get the hemoglobin levels and serum calcium levels evaluated. You may need supplimental iron and calcium tablets. Ostiomalacia is one of the leading causes of fractures. Healthy diet and adequate rest is what you require in abundance and so if you could somebody to help you to raise the childern it would be ideal. Do also visit a psychologist and get some councelling as post- partum depression can play a major role in your well being. Take care.
