It's been six weeks since my surgery, and I'm still unable to sleep on my side. Is this common?

      Yes, it’s normal. Keep in mind to check the area every once in a while and be aware to redness or swollen

      Hey! I totally get what you're going through. It took me about 8 weeks post-surgery to comfortably sleep on my side again.

      Hey there, I went through something similar after my surgery. It was almost 10 weeks before I could sleep on my side without discomfort. I found that using extra pillows for support really helped. Gradually, I started to ease into sleeping on my side for short periods, and eventually, it got better. It's definitely a common issue, so don't worry too much. Just remember, healing takes time, and everyone's body reacts differently. Hang in there, and take care!
