Fall on bum makes sitting painful

Three years ago I fell very hard on my bum. Now when I sit down for an hour I can feel pain on my right bum and after a while it radiates down my leg. What remedy can I use to get rid of this pain?

Dear Tiyani

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

In order to find a remedy, you will first have to find the underlying cause. This should be done by having x-rays taken of your lower back region. Having pain for three years means that your condition is chronic and I therefore, strongly recommend that you consult an orthropaedic surgeon.

Kind regards
