Pain in coccyx, painful to sit. Due to bruising during colonoscopy?

I am 53 years old male and had my first colonoscopy last Friday on April 12th. During this past week over the last 4 days I have been feeling pain after sitting for a while and then upon standing up. the pain is in the area of the cocyx. Could the pain be due to bruising that may have occurred during the exam? I am also a Pharmacist and now have first hand experience when dealing with patient's concerns about having a colonoscopy.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the area of coccyx after colonoscopy could be related to a minor muscular injury or a spasm in the area. Doing a hot fomentation and using a doughnut cushion along with mild pain killers will help in reducing the symptoms.
