I'm 6 weeks post op a minimally invasive discectomy on my L4-L5 herniated disc. Sitting for long periods of time gives me a sharp tailbone pain when I go to stand up from seated position. I work a desk job that allows me to work from home 3 days a week, but I must go in the office at least once a week. I also work 4 ten hour shifts. I go back to work in a little over a week. I'm very nervous about sitting for such a long period of time. I know I can get up whenever I feel the need to stretch and walk around but I worry that I will get so focused on my work that I will forget sometimes.
At home I plan on trying to stand and work with a raised desk. I also have a reclining sofa I can sit in, or I can work in my bed. Obviously my bed would be the easiest on my body but I don't know if it's healthy to be laying in bed all day.
I did buy a lumbar roll to place on my back when in seated position.
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions that may help with this sort of issue?
