This whole bony butt thing



Recommended Posts

Question to all the vets out here, because we need to talk about this whole bony butt thing. Or bone maybe is not the right word - maybe it is muscle along with bone on a surface with little fat?🤷‍♂️

Does it ever get better? Because I can't sit on hard surfaces😂 I was on the floor doing some yoga and tried to turn around, and it was utter pain to move over on the butt. I almost gave up, screamed through it and scared my dogs shitless because of the moaning, cursing and screaming. Sometimes it is like sitting on a spiked foam roller. I want to move all fat on the frontside to the trunk!

Your sitting bones are made to sit on. They should adapt. But maybe I'm just used to the pressure on them because of biking on hard saddles.

I bike to. I has gotten gradually more hard to sit. But on a bike seat a lot of the pressure is not directly on the glutes, but a little further in between your legs,

The pressure should be on your sitting bones when biking. Did you ever have the distance between your sitting bones measured?

mine still does sometimes - and I have one of those coccyx pillows in my car for long trips (I had one on my office chair, too, before I retired). I don't notice it as much anymore, though. Not sure if it's gotten better or if I've just figured out how to sit to minimize it (??).

Forgive my irrational exuberance....I’m sure the pain is real.😞 I just wish mine wasn’t “quite” so padded and accomodating.😰

The struggle is real - I also have a damaged coccyx thanks to my second daughter coming out extremely fast when she was born, so I have a painfully bony bum plus a coccyx that moves and grates. Sitting cross legged on the floor is all in the past for me.

Oh I so hope it improves because it’s horrendous. Please, please, please. I sometimes feel like screaming too as I get up all bent over & holding my lower back. Then there’s the bony elbows, spine, knees, ankles. My sister in law also suggested one of those donut cushions. Might be my next purchase.

You are not sitting directly on your glutes while biking. I don't know about your anatomy, but my bike seat is more "between" the ass and a little more to the front, so when I bike, it is not the same thing as putting the ass on a wooden chair🤣

I ordered a padded tights to see if it helps. I think the donuts and such are even harder to sit on, and feels weird.

Hmmmmmmm, most of the pressure is on the sitting bones which feel like two knobs when you sit on them. I can't stand pressure on the "female parts". It just hurts!!

Just sat crosslegged on the hard floor in front of my balcony door in the warm sunspot and could feel the two knobs that are the sitting bones. This isn't supposed to hurt though.

This video explains the sitting bone stuff.

And maybe these two guys offer an explanation to your pain? They're quite funny. Love their videos!

Since we’re discussing bones- never had or could feel hammer toes but now toes & feet so bony! I have to wear toe coverings on couple of toes cause bones now protrude so much. My feet/toes/ankles always were so swollen. Can’t believe I actually have thin feet now!!

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
