A Natural Sleep Aide After a TKR

Sleeping comfortably after having a tkr (total knee replacement) surgery done is, to say the least, troublesome. As I mentioned previously in blog posts, it took me about three months to be able to sleep on my side. Even then, though, it was painful.

It’s almost 11 months after my tkr and I have found a sleeping aide that works well. By “works well” I mean it eases the pain. It works for me, so I’m hoping it can work for others in the same situation.

That sleep aide is a body pillow. While using a regular or large pillow before, I found that there was still too much pressure on either my ankles or knees. This would cause increased pain. With a body pillow, this doesn’t seem to happen. My having that extra cushioning along the length of my leg really makes a difference. Let’s hope it lasts.

The only drawback to using a body pillow it can be rather cumbersome if you want to turn over onto your other side. Life can be rough, I say. 🙂

NOTE: I’m kind of afraid to say anything, though, since it’ll probably start hurting tonight. (Murphy’s Law follows me around, you know).

Thought this may help those of us trying to get a good night’s sleep while recuperating from a total knee replacement surgery.

  • I, too, sleep with a pillow, it is my best friend at night. It is very interesting to realize that sleeping on the side that my tkr is, I have no problem and don’t need a pillow, but when I sleep on my thr side I use the pillow to support my knee. I sleep much better on the side where I had the thr. I use a queen size feather pillow, which is very effective.
    Yes, sleeping with a pillow does mean you have to sleep alone unless you have a king size bed. We have both a queen and a king but I get sore sleeping in king size bed, so don’t do that often. Having thr and tkr changes one’s life in more ways that one.
    Have a Happy Holiday!
