The tailbone pillow wasn’t for surgery soreness, it’s for the soreness of sitting in bed. This is the one I have. I have no padding on my butt, so sitting in bed really hurts my tailbone.

The kind I got also doubles as just a nice supportive pillow, so it can also be used on your back or whatever. I suggest it!

Good luck! You’ll do great!

I second quality rubber floor mats. Also like door edge trim to guard against knicks.

And I use a cushion in this shape (no knowledge of this particular one but the cutout makes a bigger difference than youd think https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010TLSFA6/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_i_dl_0FDS25DJ118SAHBWAAE4 )

As I rarely have back seat passengers I remove the headrests in the back for better visibility.

Not sure if that is what you are thinking of.

Sitting is my main trigger for flares since I’ve been on the IC diet for 7-8 years. (Minus a few cheat or experiment days.). That’s why I always bring it up when I see people asking for advice.

I bought a coccyx pillow and use it backwards to relieve pressure on my urethra. I also change from sitting to standing and vice versa frequently. When I was in the office in person Before Covid^(C), I used a sit stand desk.

I also don’t wear restrictive or tight clothing. If it touches anywhere along my vulva while sitting or standing, it’s going back on the rack.

Hey! I’m not sure if I can be of help, as I’m not a bigger gal, but I started developing some really awful sciatic nerve pain at my paralegal job, and I bought the cushion that I’m linking below from Amazon end of 2017, and it is still working wonders for me. It helps align your hips and keep pressure off your lumbar spine and coccyx.

This is the cushion that I use

My first pregnancy I was in the car for 4 plus hours a day commuting. I had the worst car pain too!

This is what I used. I still use it actually haha. It didn’t make all the pain go away but I was a lot more comfortable

I’ve dealt with hemorrhoids for many years. I’ve had one surgically removed that would not go away (surgery was not horrific like I thought it would be) I’ve pushed some back in, I’ve had two pop (ruined a pair of underwear and a cushion donut). What worked for me was drinking more water (invested in a cheap 40oz pogo water bottle with oz marks), paying more attention to my stool (great poop charts out there that tell you what’s wrong your diet!), squatty potty wherever possible, stop straining and less time on the toilet (avoid phone scrolling), and sitting on this seat cushion at work to take pressure off that region ComfiLife Premium Comfort Seat https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010TLSFA6

I also had a patient ex that never made me feel bad about it and was very excited when I could bottom.

Okay, so this is what I do, and I don’t have flares anymore.

  1. Wear a dress/skirt/something very very loose in the trousers area. No rubbing = no friction flare.

  2. Bring on a seat cushion that has a hole near my urethra. I use this one: ComfiLife Coccyx Orthopedic… https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010TLSFA6?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

  3. Tell the ticket check in guy at the boarding area, “Hi, I have a disability that requires me to have an aisle seat. Can you make sure that’s where I’m seated?” They will have no problem helping you out. (They’ve even bumped other people around for me, and they don’t ask details.)

  4. Tell your flight attendant, “Hi, I have a disability that requires me to go to the bathroom frequently and stand up about every thirty minutes or so. Is there anything special I need to do?” This has allowed me to get up and go stand in line for the bathroom so I don’t flare from sitting down too long.

  5. Bring your own snacks, and get water when they bring the cart down.

  6. Relax. Listen to some music or an audiobook. Take a nap. Watch a movie. Pay extra for the WiFi if moseying around the internet helps.

  7. Call the company beforehand to double-check how to obtain any of these accommodations. (This should be #1, but I’m on mobile, so I ain’t switching it.)

  8. During layovers, check with boarding for your seat, walk around, laugh at the ridiculous prices, find a coffee shop, and get a vanilla steamer.

It won’t be as bad as you think as long as you REQUEST YOUR ACCOMMODATIONS. ALL OF THEM, NOT JUST THE BATHROOM. You have a disability. By law, you are too be given accommodations so that you can enjoy a normal life.

I also tell myself when requesting, “If that stupid person over there can bring their untrained snake on a plane by claiming it’s a service animal, I can freaking stand up when I need to.” Helps give me confidence.

I’ll post a couple of snacks and meals you can bring with you to sate your appetite.

I’m so sorry! I’ve been dealing with this for about half my pregnancy too. First thing that helped me, was a Coccyx Cushion: https://www.amazon.com/ComfiLife-Coccyx-Orthopedic-Cushion-Sciatica/dp/B010TLSFA6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1478044291&sr=8-2&keywords=coccyx+cushion. It helps a lot. I also started physical therapy and acupuncture and I’ve found them both to be immensely helpful. While I felt the most relief from a heating pad, my physical therapist told me that icing the area is better because the sciatica is caused by inflammation. Good luck!

Get something like this. https://www.amazon.com/ComfiLife-Coccyx-Orthopedic-Cushion-Sciatica/dp/B010TLSFA6/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1473437810&sr=8-4&keywords=seat+pad

It’ll force correct posture by not having a padded back to lean back on. Keep checking CL, Thrift stores, classifieds, and flea markets for deals. Make sure you google appropriate weight limits and such before making a purchase, or search the /r/BIFL forums for older posts on appropriate brands. EZ rule of thumb is if it MSRPs for 500+ and is sold to businesses directly. They’re built to last.

I bought an ergo cushion. This one in particular: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010TLSFA6/

It sucks to have to buy something like that on your own dollar, but I ended up using it at home too! It helped a lot.

“friend” huh? riiiiiight 🙂

I researched these awhile ago and what I remember most is that you should be very carful what you purchase. There’s a lot of knockoffs on the market trying to exploit gamers desire for high quality gaming chairs. I saw many reports of shitty quality DX gaming chairs. The company says unless you purchase from them, the quality cannot be guaranteed nor warrantied. However those are some expensive ass chairs.

A friend of mine was about to trash his old chair because all the foam had broken down in the seat cushion and it was uncomfortable. He bought a memory foam cushion like this as a cheap alternative until he could find the chair he wanted but it worked out so well he’s not even looking for a replacement chair anymore.

I got this one for $5 less. I love it, thought it tends to shift back on the seat some.
