I'd recommend this wedge. Have had serious problems with bile reflux despite 4" blocks under the bedhead. Now I also have this wedge the problem has been resolved. It does take a bit of getting used to -it's like sleeping on a ski slope-but it does work. (16 years post IL)

I thought the wedge, at least the one from the hospital (which was no bargain) was very uncomfortable. So, although expensive, considering the life long elevation needed - we went for the Tempur-Pedic bed with adjustments for height and legs. There are several models which go from the more inexpensive to the crazy expensive - but, it may be worth a look - this isn't something that is going to go away - we have to be propped up so we might as well be comfortable. Also, a note that most of those places have 4 year - 0% interest deals.

I purchased an adjustable frame which fits at the top of the bed and has about six or so different heights, so that you can experiment with what suits you best.

I still use quite a lot of pillows and have found I can only sleep in a sort of sitting position without having regurgitation problems which quite frankly I try to avoid at all costs.

If I try to sleep on either side I get problems within about a half hour, and so I have just got used to sleeping on my back and now after two years or so post IL that doesn't present a problem for me. In the early days I was choking in the middle of the night and it really is an awful experience so I do sympathise, The frame for me wasn't a particularly expensive option, I think it cost about twenty pounds, but if anyone wants a contact to buy one please let me know as I will still have an invoice somewhere!
