I'm 6 weeks out from PLIF and just started taking my brace off at bedtime as per surgeons intructions. The problem is that I have the tendancy to turn and lay in my stomach during the night. It apparently causes me no pain but Ive read different threads on here about the fact that ppl shouldnt lay on their stomach after a fusion. It's true that I feel like I have more pressure in my back when I wake up by no pain.
Does anyone have any knowledge of this...if its alright or not to be sleeping like this.
If not I'm gonna put my brace back on at night to stop myself from rolling over.
