Hi my favorite readers! Some of you have asked me about sleep positions after a total knee replacement. Well, for myself, it took a good two months before I could turn over onto my side. Until then, I slept on my back.
When sleeping on my side, I still place a pillow between my legs and it eases most of the discomfort. You may be different.
No matter what sleep positions after a total knee replacement I use, it’s still painful on my surgery leg. That is due to my having severe neuropathy (nerve damage) caused from the bone spurs I had prior to my surgery. That will always happen.
Hope this tkr writing helps others going through the same thing. Rated as a popular knee forum and one of the best of tkr blogs, you are more than welcome to place your comment below.
