My husband had an ACDF last week. When he got home we had a really difficult time getting him comfortable. I did a little research, and found a group of pillows that turned out to be invaluable throughout his recovery. Lucky for us we have a Relax the Back store locally and we were able to send his mom to pick them up the same day. If you are having a spine surgery I would recommend ordering these pillows or having them on hand before you or your loved one returns. My husband is 6'10" and the pillows can be adjusted to keep him comfortable in the bed or in his big chair. Good luck, and I wish you a speedy recovery!http://www.relaxtheback.com/sleep/bed-wedges.html
Bed wedges provide the support and comfort of an adjustable bed. With bed
wedges, you can sit upright or lie back in the Zero Gravity position. This position reduces pressure on your spine, while increasing circulation and relieving muscle tension. Another benefit of adjustable bed wedges is that they reduce the stress on your heart by elevating your lower body.
If you have pain in your knees or pain associated with varicose veins, bed wedges allow you to raise your legs and relax in total comfort. Heartburn sufferers have also reported increased comfort while using wedges.
