Sleep position?

i am 7hrs post op - laminectomy and am home. i want to go to bed but im used to sleeping on my stomach. they said no to that. my alt way to sleep is on my side, is this safe? i have a pillw betwwen my legs. the only issue w this is it bothers my shoulder a bit.


  • I used to sleep on my stomach, but after various medical problems I learned to sleep on my back (with a pillow under my knees), so it can be done. But if you don't like the idea, I understand you can sleep on your side, if you use enough pillows to prop yourself up to prevent you from rolling over to your stomach. Try and see what works for you. Good luck!
