Hi all,

Home from hospital and have that restless feeling like I don't know what's coming or going?! Did you sleep only on your back in bed? What was the easist way to sleep? Did you sleep on your side at all? A little painful, but maybe easier to sleep. Looking for some ideas for getting comfortable in bed. Thanks!

Thank you for post. I am a side sleeper also and am having difficulty sleeping any way but on my back. Less than 1 week out. I have found sleeping in a recliner helps...yet still, on my back.

Anyone else have thoughts? Will I be able to sleep on my side again soon?

I slept on my side the second night home from the hospital with a pillow under my belly. Even better if you can do it with a full body pillow.

By two days post op I could sleep on my side with a pillow under my belly.

I am a belly sleeper and 7 days out can almoat sleep on my tummy again. Feels a little weird but not painful.

I also sleep better on my back if I can prop pillows under my legs and my head up.

You'll be amazed at how much easier it gets each day out.

I also had my surgery on Monday and have a hard time sleeping on my back. Last night I used a full body pillow and was able to sleep half the night on my side. I also will cherish those words, "you'll be amazed at how much easier it gets each day out".

The sleeping thing got me too! The only time I needed pain medication after I got home was in the middle of the night when I woke up laying on my stomach. It really does get a little better every day. Honest!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
