Hi! I had my sleeve done 8 days ago also. I only have had one night that I could not sleep well. I think I took my Vitamins too late in the evening. I have always noticed I could not take Vitamins before bed or I slept like crap. Hope that helps you. Good Luck!

I had trouble sleeping for the first month post op. I had trouble getting to sleep, and would be restless and waking several times a night. I think it was a side effect of the anaesthesia, and post surgery hormonal chaos. The only nights I had a good sleep were the couple of times I took an over the counter sleeping pill.

Hopefully it will resolve for you in time.

I have always been a stomach sleeper, and it took me two months to be able to return to that. I just used a million pillow to prop myself into a reclined position on my back, and dealt with it until it passed.

I only had surgery Monday and I am waking up almost every 2 hrs at night and then fully at 4am. Can't explain why. I used to sleep on my stomach so I keep thinking that it's just even odd to sleep on my back. I just go for a walk at 4am outside and then usually I can bang out another 2hrs sleep when back.

Invest in a long body pillow, Wal-Mart has them, suspect Target, Meijer and even Kohls might. Turn on your siden prop that upper leg up if you need to , hug that critter like it was a Teddy Bear, as the pain goes away tummy sleeping may start to return.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
