for me it was around three weeks, I think, before I could sleep on my side (I'm a side sleeper, too...)

Yes, I had quite a bit of post-op pain and I was still taking pain medication every 8 hours when I was 9 days out. There's a whole range of how much pain people experience post-op and you're just toward the higher end of the range, but still normal. I was too and fortunately my surgeon provided pain meds until I didn't need them anymore. Hang in there, it should get better soon. Hugs. 🤗

I was "uncomfortable", but not really in pain. I can tolerate a lot of pain. I refused to take pain meds, even during my 2 days in the hospital. I don't do good on meds, and don't like the way they make me feel.
