Annie, Did that person mean a doughnut pillow or just any pillow to hold against the incision? That helps / feels good in a lot of instances.

The first night after my hyst I was side sleeping. I'd slowly and carefully move from one side to the other (via my back) while holding a pillow against my incision. No problems doing that. Then prop the pillow against my stomach and drift back to sleep. Felt very comfortable and relaxed. Those good hospital drugs probably had something to do with it.

Definitely the tummy pillow is needed. But also listed as helpful were the doughnut pillow (as I said, possibly for hemmoroid problems) and a body pillow some said was useful and a wedge for under the head and upper body someone said was very useful to them.
