Another Bed question

Does anyone out there sleep on a futon that is on the floor? We have this. We are thinking of getting a frame ,because I don't know how I'm going to get out of it. Before when I hur t my back I would crawl to the dresser and hike myself up that way.

I think the bed frame would be a really good idea. I think it would be real hard to get off the floor for several weeks. Just getting out of a regular bed and off the couch took some effort for me.
Maybe some of the other ladies who have done this will post with some advice too.
Good luck and keep posting. We are here for you.

Ouch! If I had to get myself up from the floor, I think I would have just stayed there for six weeks!!!

If I were you, I'd definitely explore the idea of getting a bed!!! Some women have slept in their recliners, but you do need to stretch out flat to sleep, to help your muscles stay in the proper position.

Good luck!

Waterbeds????

I'm not sure what I'm going to do after my surgery. We have a water bed. May have to sleep on couch or sofa bed. What do you think?

We have another waterbed thread (hey, a poem!) going...do a search on "waterbed" and you'll find lots of experiences, both pro and con!

No water bed

Hi, I dont think it would be wise to have a waterbed in the shape you are in.. just my opinion though. Hope things go well for you
Big from me.
Love.
