Any Recommendations for Lumbar Support Cushions

I have been searching the internet for a good lumbar support cushion for my office chair at home. Can you recommend a make from personal experience.

I had a Lumbar Decompression with a fusion of the L4/5 on December 3. I will be going back to work next Wednesday 8 weeks post surgery. I am a Human Resources Assistant for a City government and spend a good part of my day sitting at a desk. I am starting out working part time to see how long I can endure. I know that at home I can stay up for about 3 hours max and then have to lay down.

I am sure all of you who have been through this know how frustrating this can be. When you get to that point you just can't sit any longer. I will also be driving for the first time next week. Luckily my work is 10 minutes from home. Only problem winter weather here in Cleveland, OH so always that fear of falling due to snow or ice.

I went to the doctor last week and my spine is starting to fuse and he was very pleased with my progress. Still on pain meds but he assured me that I should still be in pain. Next visit is in 6 weeks and hopefully at that point physical therapy. Also no need to continue wearing my back brace although at times I still use it.

Thanks and any suggestions are appreciated.
