Aspen neck brace

Havibg a difficult time w/my Aspen neck brace. I'm 3 weeks out from fusion neck surgery due to severe spinal stenosis. I'm having pain from the plastic part of the brace digging in my head. There's cushioning between the plastic and my head, but it's not thick enough and now my head hurts in the morning. Any suggestions of something I can put between the brace and my head, not to thick, but thick enough to help.

    @mozatrtc,if you’re around I’m curious did you find solution with your hard collar? Did your place the cushions right? Specially the piece in the back of the head you can easily put it up side down and you don’t feel it.it comes with two pairs of cushions. Try the other one. And If you remove them to wash them it’s very tricky to put it back the right way. You must remember,exactly where each piece goes.. I have the Vista Aspen wich kind easy to tight or loose it from the front bottom, but I love the Miami J and since I will be on hard collar for at least six months they gave me 3 . Two Miami J and one Vista Aspen..I only use the Miami J day and night..
