my surgery was July 31st..spend nearly two weeks on recliner sleeping. around that time my husband bought me one of the triangle wedge pillows for the bed. I have been trying it on and off and am having a terrible time trying to sleep with it on the bed. it is now nearly seven weeks post-op. When ever I sleep in bed ( I have not slept through the nite since my surgery either on the recliner or in bed) I wake up terrible pain. almost feels like I can feel the metal in my neck pressing into the base of my skull. I thought I was slipping down, so i put a piece of non-skid stuff that goes under carpets under my pillow with no luck. the man in the store said to use my regular pillow on top of the wedge so I put the non-skid stuff in between. I was told not to lay flat yet. I see doctor on the 26th. of this month for x-rays.
I guess I should just stick with the recliner for now? Just looking for experiences with getting a decent night sleep. Thanks.
