Yes, I deal with the exact situation every day, the difference being that I had fractures of the pelvis instead of a broken tailbone. This happened four years ago, so I assume it isn't going away. I'm going to take Machka's suggestion about lowering the handlebars today, and I'll let you know. Otherwise, I have no suggestions of my own.
I used to ride on a Brooks Champion Flyer that fit so well I didn't know it was there. It is now a torture device of the first order. I replaced it with a Terry Cite Y, (Cite X is the women's model) which is kind of in accord with RonH's idea in that it is moderately split all the way back. It's also somewhat padded, but not cushy. It was helpful on bumps, but just continued riding still gets painful. Like yourself, I get the same type of pain when sitting in most chairs as well.
If you, or anyone else comes up with something else, do let me know. If you don't have enough posts to be allowed to PM, my email is in my profile.
Off to dink with the bar height. . . .
Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.
