Hi; sorry to hear you are in pain. Have you had the 'ball in the vagina' checked out? I didn't spot mine until it was hanging right out of me, because I felt no pain. I found out it was a third degree uterine prolapse. I bought an inflatable doughnut cushion for about five pounds, I think it was. When fully inflated it made chairs uncomfortably high, but semi-deflated was enough to make sitting more comfortable. I use a pessary now, to keep the prolapse inside. I hope this helps.

thank you my problem was a prolapse I had the surgery to correct it and now have to have it undone du2 scar tissue interfering with the nerves that is causing me so much pain

I understand this, as my pudendal nerve has been a huge issue for me lately as well. I use a ComfiLife gel seat cushion. You can find them on amazon for around $30. They have a handle on the side so you can carry them wherever you need. I toss mine in a beach bag when I’m going somewhere like dinner out. (I can not sit on a hard chair)

Good luck!

I’ve used it both ways. Use it however it is comfy for you. Some days I use it with the cut out toward the back, some days, forward. Depends on where my pain is — and the chair, honestly. Hang in!

I use a theraseat cushion. Its pricey but it really helps and it is very discreet looking with a handle. You can remove the cover and wash as well.


thank you all

I have a friend who swears by the Roho Cushion (Amazon). I am about to buy one to try.

Thank you I ordered a cushion made of memory foam just in case we need to cut it out more in the middle I will give it a try ..... I responded to you regarding a dr. in the us please keep me posted as to how you are making out many prayers

I like my memory foam cushion. That being said A Dr just suggested avoiding the memory foam cushions since they hold heat. Just wanted to share.

Thank you for sharing it is so confusing to try to find the right cushion....I'm getting this just to get something quick while I do a search via medical suppliers my inns. will pay for 60% with a dr.'s note....I'm hoping with the cut out it won't get to hot thanks again

Good luck if you find a good one let me know.

Great to hear your ins will cover some that is great!

I just purchased the theraseat because it was made by someone who has had pudendal nerve entrapment. I am going to give it a try
