I am new to this site and need a little advice. I am 5 and 1/2 weeks post op from L5/S1 fusion with decompression. Before my surgery I had awful sciatica pain in my right hip and leg and it was unbearable while driving. My life was pretty miserable since I commute 50 miles each way to work daily.
I just started trying to drive last week and I cannot seem to drive without pain in my right hip--it isn't as bad as before surgery but it's bad enough that I haven't been able to drive for more than 10 minutes at a time. The problem is that I start back to work on July 17th and I need to find a cushion for my car seat that will help with this pain. I have a memory foam lumbar cushion that I paid $50.00 for & it doesn't help. It isn't the contoured type,though.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
