Unhappy Comfortable chair problem

I am currently waiting for surgery for a prolapsed disc and can't find a chair to sit on comfortably!

DH has bought me a couple of different ones here and here to use when sitting at my desk, the first being too high and the second just the right height but not comfy enough... does anyone have any ideas, apart from standing to scrap but i've found that after 10-15mins my legs go weak and i have to sit and end up with 'dead' feet.... I am desperate to scrap and start stamping now!

Any ideas would be helpful

What you need is a Backfriend - then you can have a comfy chair regardless of what you're sitting on. I have two - one for home and in the car, and the other is for my chair at work, which they kindly bought for me. I have herniated discs amongst other things, so can fully empathise!

Sometimes it helps if you use a stool for your feet so they are not floating in the air ie if your feet don't reach the floor.
If a stool is too high a few thick books work.

the first chair looks adjustable height wise - I take it you have tried it at the lowest height (not being silly but it is always worth checking)

I have a disc that slips in and out at will, it's been going on for 10 years now. I have 2 back friends also, one for home and one for the car. I have a memory foam mattress which has helped enormously. I don't feel that I can be of help, but you are not alone. Keep smiling and keep crafting x

Oh, I'd say you've just been of help Sam! You're someone else with a backfriend or two, so that's an endorsement of how good they are
