I had an L4/L5 right side microdiscectomy on Feb. 10, 2014.
I went for a short drive a few days ago and ended up with more numbness in my right lower leg and foot. I have a somewhat low car that is difficult to get in and out of while keeping my back straight. I sit in a more reclined position and my knees are quite bent. I used a lumbar support pillow which I thought was helping. Prior to surgery driving was one of the most painful things I had to do.
What has helped other post microdiscectomy patients here to drive? Have you had to change to a different type of car that's easier to get in and out of? Special cushions or positions?
