numbness in feet after sitting

had surgery one year ago for spinal stenosis ( lost feeling below waist after standing/walking for 5 minutes ). the laminectomy helped that numbness a great deal, but now it seems like the worst thing i can do is sit on a hard surface or ride for long periods in cramped positions in a car. after such sitting, i will have increased leg weakness and numbess/tingling in both feet-going up stairs can be difficult. any ideas?
