Uncomfortable Night



Recommended Posts

So last night was my first night at home since surgery and it was not so pleasent. I did have some pain, not excrutiating but a little bothersome pain. The worst part was that I am sooo used to sleeping on my belly and I couldn't. Thank god the painkillers knocked me out! I did wake up in the middle of the night and had to take more painkillers just so I can go back to sleep. I ended up just knocking out on my back but caught myself a few times wanting to turn on my belly. So a lil word of advise to those who sleep on their bellies...

START PRACTICING NOW sleeping ON YOUR BACK!! lol

I wanted to turn on my belly so bad last night! lol :tongue2:

I know what you mean! I'm not normally a belly sleeper, but I do sleep on my sides and I HATE sleeping on my back! But since my surgery on Monday It's been so hard to get any decent amount of sleep. For the past few nights I have been waking up every 2 hours. So I try to utilize that time by drinking some Water and walking around a bit to get the blood moving in my legs.

Hope tonight is better for you. I actually got to sleep on my right side last night, my left side is still a bit too achy!

Thanks for the advice! I'm a belly sleeper and I was wondering how I was going to manage. I guess I'm just going to have to suffer, because there is no way I can sleep on my back. When I was 19 I had my tonsils taken out and even then after the anesthesia and liquid codeine I couldn't sleep on my back!

I hope you can sleep on your belly again soon! I've tried several times to try to sleep on my back, but to no avail! So I can imagine how much it stinks to not be able to.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
