On Oct 9th I had lumbar fusion surgery (T12-L2) and bone graft after having my L1 smashed by a careless car driver. I'm in the process of getting back to work - a few hours a day - but am struggling with finding a comfortable chair.
I suppose there are a couple of issues - I'd like to ensure that I maintain the correct back support and have been following the ergonomic requirements for my work station - needless to say I need a new chair! However as my back is still sore and tender after surgery am I better off looking at using a kneeling stool or swiss ball to sit on?? Or do I perservere with a chair and very thick cushion?
I don't see my neurosurgeon until the 10th Dec and don't really know where to go to get advice in the meantime.
I have not been given any physio to do apart from walking and to keep BLT to a minimum as well as no driving!
Any thoughts, tips, advice or otherwise would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance
