Right now I am almost 5 weeks post op and I use a sort of beanie pillow. It's this stuffed elephant I had that is filled with those syrofoam very small balls. It's the only thing I could sleep on for a long time, either that or just my arm. I also have to sleep on my side if I am having a rough day, or on the couch that way I can lean back into it and then put a pillow under my head and one between my knees to keep my hips from hurting.
Hi, I found this pillow at bed bath and beyond. It's like 80 but its worth it. It's somewhat of a U shape where you can kinda prop your neck into. I have been through several pillows and this one seemed like the most confortable one. Hope this helps.
Thanks momof3 I am headed there this morning and I will check it out. I decided I am going to lay on one of those display beds and see what I think ... Try them out lol. If they don't like it I have a good excuse:)
I found a pillow at Penny's that have the little bead's in it and it forms to the head. It is a life saver. Also I know Beauty control has the neck rap's that I also highly recommend. I have 2 acturally. 1 alway's in the freezer for a cold pack and other for microwave for heat. I used to sew and make the neck wrap's. I love them and it also help's support the neck. Hope this also help's. Good luck with the pillow.
had anyone tried the one from homemedics? is has momory foam (which i love but i find too hard now) in the middle and down alternativ (which i love even more but is too soft now!!!!) surrounding it I would LOVEE to try it but its somewhere from 70-90... and i cant really find any reviews from anyone with neck problems/migraines.
I have a home edics pillow and have been using it since my surgery even took it to the hospital, but it is a different style then what u r talking about....I love it and happy to have it...u can google home edics and look at the diff styles.....
The one I have was not that expensive and is perfect for me.
im gonna do somemore research on it.. right now ive been sleeping with a firm down, but its lacking just enough for a sore neck in the am. and when i watch tv i use a feather on top of my memory foam same if im doing anything on the computer nook or phone.. and that is AWESOME but too high for me to be able to sleep comfortably on
hi, i use 1 of them big v shaped pillows. u can use them in lots of different positions and they dont cost too much. i also have some of those small beanbag like pillows which go around your neck and they can be really helpful if u have problems resting your head in the bath aswell. hope u find something to help. steph.
It was called a re-shapeable pillow and was 9.99...I will have to see if there is still a tag on it, but I love it...all I have to do is shake it and it fluffs back up...and it is very soft, but gives me support....
