Butt Pillow! Where to get one?

Hi guys,

First post on the new forums I think, wish they hadn't changed them, so many threads in the last one I didnt have a chance to respond too...

Anyway, I am looking for a butt pillow, preferable inflatable like those airline neck pillows that can simple be inflated and deflated as needed and can fit in my bag. I need to go to coffee shops often for hours and need to sit, in sometimes very uncomfortable, low chairs, or sometimes overly hard or soft chairs that put pressure on my lower back making it very difficult to sit.

Anyone know where I can buy something like this? Any one have any experience using one? Results?

Thanks.

Problems: Have a herniated disk in L5/S1, diagnoised by MRI two years ago. L5 is a black hole, and L4 is losing fluid. Main issues now are pain in lower back, mostly muscle.

Treatments: acupuncture, degenerative disc disease, exercise/stretching, lumbar herniated disc, massage, minor scoliosis, some bone stenosis in the neck.

About me: Looking for new strenghening exercises for lower back and abdomen. Also looking for height friendly furniture and a forumula to calculate if you are this tall then how tall should your desk, chair, and other things be to make you feel more comfortable.

Also, I was thinking about this. You know when you fly on a plane there is always a magazine called SKYMALL? They always have everything you can imagine in there. I bet if you searched for that online you could maybe find it.

I had thought about a travel store, will check there.

A body pillow is way tooooooo big to be carrying around a city in a suit, or for any reason for that matter.. It won't deflate either..

Another Idea

You can go to any home health store and get an inflatable donut pillow. It is actually for hemmoroids but I have used one when I have pain in my tailbone and it helps.

You know what painintheback, I have hemmoriods too, and your idea seems like the best so far, killing two birds with one stone, now all I need to do is find one here...
Thanks!

It Should

be fairly easy to find. Any home health aids store would have them and probably most of the chain drugstores like walgreens. Glad that I could help.

Tall Guy Great to See You!

Hey Tall Guy it's great to see that you made it to the new forum.

Painintheback, Tall Guy lives over here in my neck of the world (Asia) and the selection of stores is dramatically different!

The hemmoroid cushion is a great idea though and I have seen those sold in Japanese drug stores, so maybe he may have some success in his area.

Tall Guy, still no luck in finding a furniture formula?

Well anyway it's great to see you again!

Hey guy I need to copy over

Hey guy I need to copy over all the old stuff, as I never responded, I made it back here months ago but didnt post. Not liking the new forums at all.

Glad to hear from you.

Yeah, no Walgreens here.. No Walmart either! ha ha

No luck on furniture formula, and it is getting crunch time becuase I bought a house, so that means I can do whatever I want as far as height goes.. I am thinking around the 90cm high mark for the kitchen counter and bathroom sink, give it a test and tell me if you think that is high enough? Forgot how tall you are...

As for the pillow, will see if I can find something in one of the hospital drug stores, just a little embarassed to be carrying that thing around everything, probably doesnt look much like a pillow.. But I guess you haev to do what you have to do right...
