Can't sleep/get comfortable

I am 3 days post op da Vinci and I am
Having trouble sleeping. Been in recliner for 3 days and I'm so tired of not being able to really sleep. I can't lay in bed no matter how many pillows I tuck under and
Around me. It hurts to stretch out and I'm
Just miserable tonight. My back hurts and shoulders hurt from
Sleeping like this for days.

Over doing it today only makes it worse, and pain meds don't give me that sleepy feeling.

Will it get better? I know it will, but tonight is a hard night.

Re: Can't sleep/get comfortable

My doctor recommended that I soak in a hot tub everyday after surgery for an hour a day. It helped with the pain, the cramps, the stress...EVERYTHING!!! I would soak as hot as I could handle for about 40 minutes. cool off, then take a pain pill and climb into bed. I would be out for 10 to 12 hours. In the beginning, I woke for a second dose of pain meds, then back to sleep. In the morning, back to the tub.

You definitely need to find a way to get a good nights sleep. how about some hot tea, with a shot of brandy to relax you? If your sleeplessness continues, you may want to talk to your doc about it. Insomnia is common after a hysteria, maybe there is something they can give you that will help.

Sending you lots of HUGS!!! Hope you get a peaceful nights rest!!!!
