What Causes Abdominal Pain,loose Stools And Back Pain?

I am a 33 year old female, have been experiencing chronic tailbone pain for several months, worsened when I fell on a waterslide a couple months ago. Got my tubes tied about 2 months ago and have been having issues with digestion ever since - occasionally thin stools and mild pain in the general area. Could this be colon cancer? I have a family history of other cancers - father recently died of occular melanoma and both grandmothers died of breast cancer.

Thin stools are concerning for changes in your colon. you should seek medical attention regarding getting a colonoscopy. this could be simple as inflammation in the colon to possibility of colon cancer. you are quite young, so it is unusual, but it can happen. Your tailbone sounds like it was strained and this could possibly be alleviated with stretching, osteopathic manipulation or chiropractic alignments. hope this helps
