Injury causing bruising on tailbone, severe pain during pressure of full colon, vanishes after bowel movement. Suggestion?

I fell down the stairs last month, I want to say i bruised my tailbone I feel it s getting better as the weeks progress, but it hurts most when there is stool in my anus . Doesn t hurt during a bowel movement it just hurts I guess from the pressure of a full colon/anus maybe? You don t think I perforated anything do you? The pain goes away after a bowel movement
