This is my first post. Can somebody recommend the above pillow.
Hi Kevin.....I've lived with CS for decades now and am constantly searching for the "best" pillow to try and prevent my neck becoming stiff and the awful headaches from developing during the night. I have pretty much tried everything out there from hard to soft and in between. Down/feather is too soft for me....not keeping enough support under the neck throughout the night. Memory foam is too hard for me....need something with more give that I can mold between shoulder and chin and too stiff causes stiff neck as it's not in a relaxed position for me. The best one I found which I have been using for over a year is something called My Pillow. It is made of lots of little pieces of foam inside so is more easily fluffed and molded into the shape that I need. It does not lose it's shape as much as the down/feather that I've tried. It's not perfect by any means but is the best so far for me. Goog luck in your search !
i went for a tempora pillow, they do two ( at john Lewis ) i went for the firmer one and it's great, i also changed the mattress too to a ortho 1400 again from John Lewis - the pillow seemed odd at first but it's amazing.
as i had a c5c6 fusion i needed something firmer and a soft pillow is now awful
hope this helps
In my local JL store the bed section has the pillows on the beds so you can try befoe buy AS THEY ARE NOT REFUNDABLE... hope you have a JL near you - the service and advice there is amazing.
I use a flat memory foam pillow and a small memory foam roll. I made the roll by cutting off the shaped edge from another pillow I don't use. It measures about eight inches long and four inches in diameter. I find if I tuck this into my neck it adds support and it is small enough to wedge in at the correct angle. I take it with me when we travel. It has made a big difference in helping with my neck and head pain. I hope this is of some use to you. Good luck with your CS.
Just adding my tupp[ence worth. In the past I've used (still got one) a proper cervical ortho soft pillow (raised ridge all around outside, and raised lump in middle). At the time that worked for easing headache symptom. Nowadays I prefer to sleep or nap semi upright on a sofa....really works. Just push 'head' end of sofa against something taller (even the wall) and using 2 or 3 pillows to help support semi upright posture, get the neck as comfortable as possible before napping or sleeping. Initially, it takes about 2 days for effects, but gets easdier as you learn the best postures. Worth a try !
