I am scheduled for L3 to S1 ALIF with posterior screws & rods on 11/23/16. I am preparing now, but I cannot figure out what kind of pillows will work best for recovery. An adjustable bed would be ideal, but that's not an option for me.
What worked for you? Wedges for your back and head? Wedges under your knees? Full-length body pillows? Hourglass thigh pillow? What shape and what type of fill do you recommend?
Did you find that some pillows did NOT work for you? Please share that information, as well.
I sleep on my back AND on my side, so I need a combination of pillows that will work for both.
Thanks in advance for all your help!
