    Sorry not had this although I did feel like I'd been kicked up the arse by a horse after I'd had Kieron. Have u got a rubber ring you could sit on or make a doughnut shape with cushions etc to help with sitting x

    Oh no :( Sorry to hear your in pain.

    I've had this and I must agree it does hurt more than the stitches.

    For me, though mine was damaged rather than bruised (dont think I'm saying it will be the same for you) and I was in pain for months. I still get pain every now and again.

    Try one of those inflatable neck pillows to sit on, £1 and has them in in their travel section. x
