Seatbelts + Surgery + Port site

I know this sounds goofy but I'm having some issues with this:

Thankfully I can still drive, and will be able to for the 4 months until my surgery. Problem is I have a painful breast cancer in my right breast - exactly where the seatbelt falls. Moving it up just sits it right on my painful lymph nodes. Move it down and it pinches underneath.

As an added bonus, I get my chemo port next week....on the LEFT side exactly where the upper portion of the seatbelt sits.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with the pressure and pulling from the seatbelt?

I tried a small pillow, but it slides around. Does not stay in place. Ideas WELCOME!! :)
