No cushion will get rid of the discomfort of sitting cross legged if there is no enough flexibility.
It can be reduced though by the hight ,firmness of the cushion but you will still be left with the problem of your condition.
After all , If sitting cross legged it is too painful it will distract you from the object of sitting and in this case is better to sit in a chair with the back straight.
Having the Back straight is more important than legs.
