Data Entry Job – SCAM!

How do you get out of bed in the morning post-op????
OMG, getting out of bed after sleeping more than a few hours is unbelievably painful. Twice now, I've gotten up in the middle of the night and the pain in my lower back and the back of my legs is excruciating to the point that I can't walk and just cry. I try to get to the bathroom, but can't make it and have to yell out to hubby to come help me.
Of course, just rolling over in bed hurts, and after I've been up for a while it still hurts to sit from standing and stand from sitting, but the mornings are so bad I need to find a solution. I'm going to put a cane next to my bed, but that's only going to help me walk, not keep the pain from being so bad.
One of the thoughts I had: I've been able to sleep in my bed like I always did, with no extra pillow and not inclined at all, but I'm comfortable sleeping on either side. I think that since I normally bend my legs up a bit when I sleep like that, that when I finally get up the muscle spasms in the back of my legs are so bad because they're getting stretched after hours of being bent.
Could this be it? Should I sleep inclined instead of flat? Should I try and just sleep in my recliner?
I'm at my wits end with this morning crud. Has anybody been able to find a solution to this post-op problem?
