Any suggestions of a good cushion or pillow while driving or riding in a car? My bottom is so uncomfortable and I've tried so many pillows. I have to go home and lay off it for awhile after driving or riding. Anyone else have this problem? Suggestions??

      Hi

      Don't laugh but I had the same problem and a great resolution .

      I have a memory foam neck pillow .... It's a bit awkward being curved but that along with my memory foam mattress is like sitting on a cloud honestly x

      I'd never use it as a pillow again mind !

    Ring donut cushions are brilliant, mobility shops or Amazon sell them they are a life saver! 

    i have had this problem (after enterocele & rectocele) and can also feel alot of pressure/pain  in bottom especially when need a BM.

    until I discovered these cushions I was laid on sofa/in bed eating and drinking as couldn't sit at table! 

    Only early days for me, 2 weeks post op, but hoping it eases soon! 

    I used to cycle a lot before the op, at the moment I can't ever imagine sitting on a bike again! 😳 xx

    You need a rubber ring to sit on so theres no pressure!  don't know if Boots have these  they used too.

    I have no idea whether this is rubbish or not but I was advised by a nurse not to use the ring cushions because of the nature of the surgery !! So I didn't but was bloomin uncomfortable sitting down without one !!!
