When can I sleep on my stomach?



Recommended Posts

I love being able to sleep in different positions. How long did it take for you all to be able to sleep on you stomach after surgery?

Honestly, I slept on my stomach about 4 days post op. It wasn't perfect but it was more comfortable than on my right side, and I'm not able to sleep all night on my back.

I was able to do it by the time I got home from the hospital.

3.5 weeks for me and I can’t. It doesn’t hurt to lay on my stomach but the turning over is brutal (and not worth it

I sleep on my right side so this is a concern for me as well. Good luck!

Exactly the same for me. I turned on the fifth day home after feeling really good...set me back a few days pain wise.

I guess it is an individual thing.

I was able to sleep on my side when I came home, if I was up on both pain medications. The pain would wake me when it wore off. I hope you are doing better!

I'm doing somewhat better thanks to asking. I lay on my side with a pillow. But I stay that way until I get my husband to help me to turn over.. [emoji1] the pain is real. I avoid the pain MEDs as much as possible haven't had it in two days. I was able to ride in the car today without feeling like I was going to die for being shaking up. Lol....

Oooh I tried post op tummy but to roll over to get up was deadly setback. I ended up waiting almost 4 weeks post op and it never felt so good!

Maybe I'm one of the lucky ones, but 9 days post op and able to lay on my stomach now with no pain or soreness sleep is good. Only if I can get my daily Protein and Water intaken in I would say it all good.
