Hi all, l am now about a week and a half post op, double CABG. Everything seems to be moving along ok, I’m doing my exercises, getting a bit stronger by the day, the op seems like ages ago already. One thing I’m struggling with is sleep. Not so much getting to sleep, but trying to sleep on my back when my natural thing has always been to sleep in a foetal position. To be quite honest, I don’t remember at any time any of the doctors or nurses saying I have to sleep on my back, it seemed pretty obvious in the days after the op so it’s probably a bit of an assumption that this is what is best to best allow my breast bone to heal. Fellow CABGers, did you have an issue with this too?
Ta muchly in advance, John
