We will be traveling in a little more than a week (family trip to visit "the grandparents" in two States) and since my sitting tolerance isn't great, I'm a bit concerned. When we made these plans the surgeon thought it would be fine.
I've been back to work for a couple weeks, but stand more than sit. Went to a three hour meeting this afternoon and probably sat half the time and stood/walked the rest.
This will be my first post-surgery air travel (microdiscectomy at L5/S1). Any suggestions on what you have found helpful? Obviously standing up to stretch when I can, trying to nab a pillow for the small of my back, etc. Other suggestions? Have several flights coming up over a 3 week period, the longest will be about 4.5 hours.
