View Full Version : Is there a certain kind of bed that helps?

Does the memory foam bed help at all? Just wondering as they look very comfortable, and look as if they may take the pressure off. If anyone has any idea or thoughts on this, please post.

I have a memory foam topper on my bed; it tends to make one too warm.
I covered it with a cotton mattress cover.
With memory foam pillows I found they sink in nicely but once that stops it gets TOO hard.

Personally, I prefer the old fashioned foam--like egg crate from a surgical supply store--and latex foam pillows.

I bought all this stuff before surgery and nothing helped because I was so crooked I needed all sorts/sizes of pillows to reduce painful sleeping. It helped with recovery though.

Hi, well I have a water bed and have had one for nearly 20 years. I find that my lumpy bits that still stick out just sink in and it is just so comfortable. You can have it on whatever heat you want and I really could not be without mine.
Karen I agree with you. I have a memory foam pillow and yes, it does go hard.

I wonder if a spinecor brace would help your pain. My son has one for pain, but he didn't have fusion. You might want to look into it, though, if solved his excruciating pain problems.
