Okay so I’m not sure the credentials of the rating system, but I sure love it!
After having a Bilateral Mastectomy you don’t realize all the different parts of you that hurt, from your armpits and chest to your wrists and back! Sleeping on pain pills might seem easier, but once you leave that adjustable hospital bed you’re going to want a system. I found my perfect sleep system and this post is a detailed How-To.
It took multiple attempts, a few days and a final purchase that hadn’t been bought before the surgery, but we did it! For the first 2 months I’ve been sleeping propped slightly upward with the perfect arm rests needed to keep the pressure off my chest, shoulders, and armpits.
Now, as things are starting to feel more settled I have removed the wedge and a few pillows are placed below the u-shaped pillow. It’s a process getting away from this fort – as I’ve become so comfy and used to it.
