It still hurts sometimes. I don't think it will ever be the same. I just live with it.

I broke mine on a Jet Ski accident about 4 years ago, it's never been the same since, in fact I don't think it has ever healed correctly. Most the time I don't notice it, but other times it can be uncomfortable just to sit down. I am a stand up rider for the most part but in the really tight stuff if I'm sitting down alot with a rough trail it inflames it some. I also know of two other individuals who have had the end chunk removed after breakage when it became necessary........TW

If any of you guys are still looking for a way to protect this area I was recently refered to the web site for EVS sports. They sell ballstic riding shorts with a tailbone pad. I will let you guys know how it works if your interseted.
ZThanks for the info

As for the padding, it would have help if you had it before the accident,not really going to help now. You know, even seating on a soft pillow
hurts, the first couple of days i couldn't even get out of the bed,had to lay on my stomach.
One more thing, if you want some good padded shorts w/tail bone protection, save your money, go to a good sporting good store that sells football equipment and buy yourself a gridle that holds hip/tailbone/thigh pads, you can get different thickness and one's that are hard shell, you can take blows of a hammer and not feel a thing.Very cheap compared to big name co. like fox and others that charge up to 50 bucks. Hope this helps.
Oh! - you can always ride with an inflatable hemroid donut strapped to your A**!

Thanks for the advice. I played football for a long time and actually thought about a girdle. I wasn't sure if there was something better on the market. In reality though it serves the same purpose so why spend the extra money?. I dont think I actually broke the bone, but I definitly bruised it. I suppose if it were broken I would surly know it.
Thanks again for your help!

I do remember actually bruising my,,, well you know, the thing you pee with, when I was about 13. I never knew you could actually bruise one of those.
