Savings on a Cushion- For Tailbone Pain

A few months ago, I went to the doctor because I had an uncomfortable tailbone when I would get into bed, lay in the tub or be in any reclining type position. The doctor did an xray and said I had a "normal" tailbone. He said that sometimes when people lose weight or don't have enough padding on their butts, they will feel their tailbone more than the other guy that may have more padding there.

He also said I was to take the pressure of the tailbone by sitting on one of those blow up donuts. But I tried that, as well as read about them online and they really aren't suitable for that. The blow up donuts seem more suited for the "front" area than the back.

All we had available in town though WAS the blow up donut, that I ended up returning, and one small cushion that didn't seem to be very thick but was around $30 at a local big box store.

I will be reviewing one in the near future, but in the meantime, Gerry bought a regular chair cushion , cut away some of the stuffing in the back middle and resewed it, so I am not sitting right on my tailbone. Cost? $12.49 + tax.
We thought of an alternative way to save us some money and it seems to be working .

I am still looking forward to review the other cushion though, as I still could use a cushion  for the car.
