I am having ACDF surgery on June 6th and have a big herniated disc at c6/7 and we will be traveling on an airplane to the US VI St. Thomas. I need some advice on what kind of neck pillow I should use for the flight to support my head during travel. I don't want to spend a whole lot of $$$ but I think using something is better than nothing.. Any advice on what works, and what doesn't is welcome!! Thanks in Advance!!

  • Hi there, and I wish you a great stay on St Thomas.
    Make sure that you have medical insurance.

    I have just got back from a cruise in the Caribbean, but we were visiting different islands this time. I do love St Thomas.

    We had long haul flight from the UK.
    The neck pillows that I used were a fluffy, stuffed, u-shaped pillow and as we were flying back overnight and I have had awful trouble with neck pain trying to sleep in the past, I tried a new pillow that also helped to support my head.

    I personally found that by using both, my head was quite well supported and I could relax my neck muscles and try to sleep, leaning on the shoulder pillow. It was not perfect, but better than with the u-shaped pillow alone.

    Have a great trip :-)

  • I have three different neck pillows as I travel a lot - the one that gives the best support is one that is filled with some sort of seeds. The inflatable one is too hard, and the polyfil pillow is too soft. I feel like Goldilocks now.
