Sleeping in bed after surgery

So I just started sleeping in bed again I've been in my.recliner after a l5s1 laminectomy. I wake up with my abdomen feeling like I've done sit ups all night long... has anyone else experienced this? No problem if I take a quick nap 2 hours or less only when I sleep in the bed. 



  • Yes I figured but you never know... I also am recovering from cauda equina syndrome so I did read that it's possible my bladder could be causing it too I was just curious. The bed hasn't been comfortable for like 2 years due to chronic sciatica so I was scared to try but now that my sciatica is gone I'm hoping my body will like bed again. 

  • I hated the bed 3 weeks post op, then it began to be my favourite place again. My surgeon told me I was allowed to sleep in bed either on stomach or on side immediately after surgery, so I did. Sending you hugs, I hope you will be pain free soon.
