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!!

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
