OK to Side Sleep w/Incision Against Pillow???
Jul 31st, 2016 at 5:56pm
 
Surgery w/Dr. Steinburg in March on right side only.  Currently only sleeping on my back or on the left side.  Is it ok to sleep with my incision side against the pillow?  What are others doing?  Thanks, John

hi bagdaddi--i havnt had surgery yet but id say you might want to go really easy on the incision,youve just been through a major life changing surgery, its about as profound an event as i can think of, from what ive read on here and facebook it will probably take about a month to heal.

take it easy man, best wishes on yr recovery
regards steve.

I did it when I felt comfortable with it.  There were no complications that followed.

I too was afraid to sleep on my incision. I actually took one of those really soft neak pillows with the opening in the center and used it to make a doughnut style pillow that allowed me to sleep on my side without putting pressure on my incision. I had bilateral surgeries so I was afraid to sleep on either side for months. The problem was that I have never been able to sleep on my back. It's been almost 4 years and I still get a little nervous when a hotel has firm pillows.
