I'm having laprascopic surgery for bilateral inguinal hernias on 2/11/15 and have heard great things about my surgeon and took time to find the best surgeon I could find with my insurance.
I just have a few post op general questions that I couldn't find much info about online.
My biggest concern is sleeping, I can't sleep on my back at all, and my guess is that on the side is out of the picture after the operation. I was planning to just fall back on sitting and hopefully I knock out there but some clarification would be nice.
If you cannot sleep on back due to a disability or such, I guess the surgeon is the best bet to suggest a way to relax. But in my office one guy had a shoulder surgery and slept on a recliner for two weeks or so. May be you can find a recliner that helps?
A case like this is hard to generalize and it the surgeon is the best point to get information. My $0.02
