sleeping after fusion question



  • I had a 2 level ALIf. When I came home from the hospital I slept on my back or sides. On my sides I had pillows on either side of me for support and one between my legs. I looked like I was in a cocoon but it really was comfortable.

    Hope this helps. I also have five young ones and have been in your shoes with delaying surgery as long as possible. If you ever need to talk or need help with surgery plans and how to do it with young children feel free to PM me.

    Good luck!
  • Wow. 2 days? What kind of fusion did you have? I'm most likely going to be in the hospital from Thursday, the day of surgery, to Monday. No fair :( Lol

  • This is good to know! I am having a level 2 ALIF on the 25th! YIKES! That's next week!!!! :O
    I can hardly find a good position right now and can hardly sleep at all! I toss and turn, go to the livingroom couch, the recliner, and even the floor and can never get it right! Pillows under my knees are good only for soo long and then my butt hurts! :''( Oh well.
    I guess I will have to just see how it goes and which position is more comfy for me, as I would think you would too. Everyone is different with their comfort, but lots of pillows is always good! :*

  • hahaha! I just sent you kisses! I meant to put a smiley!!! Oh well, 8} here's a hug too! >:D< LOL!!!

  • Thanks for all the tips! :)Jaime
