A way to lay on your tummy...

but you have to be allowed swim to do it. I found out that if you have one of those really thin floats (the kind that looks like it could not support you), you may be able to lay on your tummy in the pool. You have to lay down gently, but it feels so good.

A way to lay on your tummy...

I remember about 15 years ago a friend of mine had a TAH and the day after surgery I went to see her in the hospital. She was rolling over to her stomach. She said her nurse told her she would heal faster if she laid on her stomach and kept the stomach muscles stretched out. It did seem she recovered pretty quick, but even though I am a stomach sleeper, it was about 3 weeks before I tried it. She must have had some pretty strong pain medicine to have been able to do that on day 2! OUCH!

a way to lay on your tummy

One way I deal with it is to remember, each time that I try to lay on my tummy, that it really isn't a good thing to sleep on your tummy, and then I flip back over!

Long time ago, I was told that sleeping on your tummy is not good for your neck or your posture so I sleep on my side and back.

When I want to revert, I just tell myself that I'll wake up with a sore neck, and back over I go!

Works for me! Although I do miss sleeping on my tummy!
