Sleeping Positions after a Total Knee Replacement

Hi my favorite readers! Some of you have asked me about how long it takes to sleep in various positions after a total knee replacement.  Well, for myself, it took a good two months before I could turn over onto my side. I still place a pillow between my legs and it eases any discomfort.  Others might be different.

It’s still painful on my surgery leg, since I have nerve damage caused from the bone spurs I had prior to my surgery.  That will always happen.

Hope this helps others going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…Thanks!

    There’s some intereting videos on modern knee replacement surgeries you can watch

    Very enlightening. Especially the one by the doctor who demonstrates how the surgeries are done.

    Warning – DO NOT PUT A PILLOW ANYWHERE NEAR YOUR KNEE FOR COMFORT AFTER A KNEE REPLACEMENT. I did this and it was one of the contributing factors to me having to get my knee manipulated under anaesthetic after 6 weeks (The doctor actually asked me if I was sleeping with a pillow around my knee for comfort and he said this should not be done!)

    Hi Katy,
    Sorry to hear about your knee manipulation. That has to be tough.
    I agree with not using a pillow for the first three months after a tkr. It’s far too painful and ineffective. After that…
    This just proves everyone is different. I have had no problem with using a pillow in various ways for my tkr recuperation (after the first three months) and it has been 19 months since my tkr.
    Good luck!

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think that
    you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

    I too had adhesions and a manipulation after my total knee replacement. I understand the adhesions are created by the body’s “fast healing” after a traumatic surgery. After the manulipulation, healing range of motion is 125 within two weeks! I did sleep with the pillow because the rehab center that provided my care ‘gave me permission’ for comfort! I feel the comfort and ability to get to sleep is very important. When I wake up during the night…the pillow is usually on the side of my sleeping position!

    It has been one month since I had a cobalt total knee replacement. The key to success, according to my orthopedic surgeon was to exercise and build strength in the knee prior to surgery. I worked out and exercised every day for 6 weeks prior to surgery. It has now been one month and one day after surgery and I am walking without a cane up to two miles and doing physical therapy. I do have pain at night, but that is diminishing. I too use a towel to cushion the knee, but am able, finally, to sleep on my side.

    I am planning on a left knee replacement this summer I am planning ahead how to adjust my bedroom for ease of access to my bed. Will I be sleeping on the left side or right side of the bed…Put my good leg in first, then lift the new knee or vice versa? Thank you for any advice.
