Sorry to hear about your problem. I am 5'8", 160 pounds, and I find the seats very comfortable. Have you tried just sitting, no driving, and adjusting the seat to see if you can get comfortable? Place the heal of your right foot below the gas pedal, place left foot on the foot rest, move the seat bottom back and down until you have support under your thighs, lean the seat back until comfortable. Don't try to adjust the steering wheel, just sit in the seat and see if that position is ok. Most people have the seat too high and too far forward. If you can get the seat comfortable, then adjust the steering wheel. The focus steering wheel does not adjust enough for me and sometimes I feel like I am too far from it but I have gotten used to that. I have had cars that I have not been able to get comfortable in, my Chevy Tahoe never did have good lower back support. I hope that this helps. Good luck.
