View Full Version : Sleeping positions

03-17-2007, 02:21 PM
I have read that many of you can sleep on your side. I can lay on one side for a short time because I am in more pain when I get up and when I turn to get up. But recently I tried to lay on the other side (that was very painful to lay on before) I was okay for a little while and then the room started spinning and when I tried to lay on the other side (that usually isn't too bad) now made the room spin.
Has anyone experienced what I have?

I wasn't able to sleep on either side for months. It was actually harder to lay on the side that didn't have the anterior incision. It was like I couldn't breathe if I laid on that side. Laying on the side with the incision just took some careful turning. I would lay for just minutes at a time just to see how it went.

after surgery i experienced the spinning affect quite a lot and when i mentioned it to the consultant he said that my body was still in recovery and it would pass with time...whih it has.

so dont worry too much, it is a lot that our bodies have to go through so they are just catching up
