Sleep

I have put this post in the Choosing Breast Reconstruction group a few days ago however, I notice that there's a lot of activity in the Night Howls group so perhaps it is worthwhile being here as food for thought as well as!

I was a stomach sleeper for a lot of years!  These days I try to sleep on my back but side sleep seems to suit better!  I had spinal surgery (neck) many years ago and was told that amongst other things my sleeping position didn't help the situation.

so if you are trying to adjust please give consideration for what is better for you long term

    @iserbrown thank you for the post. This is so apt for me at the moment. I used to be a stomach sleeper until last year when I had my operation. Coming out of hospital I made myself sleep on my side for obvious reason it hurt to sleep on my front. Over the months I went back to stomach sleeping.

    I have pain and aches in my shoulders and back the last week. Finally plucked up courage to go to the DR this week and she recommended a Physio. Which I am off to this morning. I am convinced its the way I am sleeping. I am not sure I could sleep on my back tho.

    Hopefully Physio is all I need.

    Thanks again
