In 2012, I had a fall backwards which broke my pelvis in two places & coccyx had a diagonal break. No bones were displaced so there was no treatment; just used walker to get around & took it easy at home for 6 weeks. Since I recovered completely, I still have pain in lower left back; sometimes it radiates down left leg; have trouble sitting, standing, walking for long periods of time. Due to liver issues, I cannot take NASIDS so I just rely on exercise.
