Comfort tips.

#1
So I'm 3 days out of my pilonidal cyst surgery. For me the pain is not to bad, I've actually been through worse. My only problem is sitting down. Does anyone have good advice for getting comfortable do any of the cushions or pads actually help? Any advance would be very welcome and appreciated

For me it would actually take quite some time I was comfortable sitting again in whatsoever position. And in the first few days I didn't sit at all (as told by my surgeon) and after started sitting either while leaning forward or to the side.
The cushion I'm using is one of these which have a piece "cut out" in the back side. Don't use the donut type.

So yeah, look into a cushion like these and otherwise don't start too soon to sit too much if you can avoid it, I'd say...

Thank I'll definitely start looking at cushions. I found a way to sit in one of my chairs but I can't replicate it anywhere else. I'm actually finding the bed to be the hardest place to get comfortable and spend most my time on the couch.

Other than going to the bathroom I didn't sit for like 4 weeks. Didn't drive, basically did not leave the house. I tried a 90 dollar cushion from amazon before my surgery and after, it was never comfortable ;)

Laying down on my back in my bed or standing at my desk were only solutions for me.

Now I'm sitting at work for meetings and driving, but i still use my standing desk (6 weeks out)
