    I’m 10 days post op and last night I was just so fed up of sleeping on my back (as it takes me hours to drop off in that position) that I just thought F it and slept on my side. Woke up in the morning with a lot of tightness and discomfort so won’t be doing that again in a hurry. I’ve been told after 6 weeks is when you can resume life as normal including sleep etc. Can’t imagine sleeping on my back for 5 more weeks!!

    I’m 5.5 weeks post op and still sleeping in a reclined position, although not as upright as you’re meant to at the very beginning. I’m still swollen so the nurses saw at my 3 week post op check said to continue sleeping in a reclined position for now, and also to stay in my M&S post-op bra until at least 8 weeks post op.
    I’m relatively comfy at night, although I do wake up periodically because I’ve slipped down the bed a bit!


    I researched that you’re meant to sleep at a 45 degree angle for 2 weeks then flat in your back till you reach 6 weeks, just to help the implants stay where they should be for awhile but tbh everywhere I look says different, I’m 2 weeks post op and I tried sleeping on my side and I lasted 10 mins due to it not feeling safe just yet. But you get used to it when I had a c section I slept on my back for months. Good luck 🙂
