No more bum hurts!

Sweet, so I went to the dr after my "broken tail bone" started to spread and hurt all the way around my entire bum... and then yesterday when it started bleeding (not from my bum hole, but right at the level of my tailbone...) Well I figured that either my tailbone was coming out of my back or that this was something different all together.

It turns out it was never broken, but that I have a Pilonidol Cyst (which is kind of like a boil, and I think it's sick. If you want to read up on it, do, but I won't make you), and that there was an infection.

As I've looked around the internet, I've seen a lot of stuff where people, when they first have an infection or whatever, they think it's a broken tailbone, so I don't feel too dumb. :) It's good news, kindof. It means that I'll have to have surgery after the baby is born, but it'll feel better in the mean time as long as I can keep it clean and take hot baths every day.

You will all be happy to know, I'm sure, that I woke up this morning and felt no pain at all. I'm sitting on a chair right now that would have killed me before. I am happy, but also grossed out.


  1. Well my finger would of never thought it was a cyst.

  2. Glad you're feeling better.

    I shall now do my very best to forget this entire conversation.

  3. I laughed so hard a spit a bit down my chin when I read that first part in parentheses. Then, since your link wasn't working, I googled Pilonidol Cyst. That was gross. Seems there was a breakout in the army some time ago, and they thought it was caused by irritation from riding jeeps. They called it jeeps disease.

  4. i'll just be grateful i had morning sickness....

  5. My poor baby! And good luck to Frik who might end up cleaning it out for you...

    Love you!


  6. yeah, MJ. Except this is completely not pregnancy related :(.

    Chaelomen: I"m glad I can make you drool... maybe...

  7. And it looks like you can make me throw up a little bit in my mouth. Thanks.
