hello i had trimalleolar ankle fracture 28/12/2022 but unfortunately because of the swelling Dr could not operate until 10/1/2023
everything is going good so far stitches aren't off yet i guess 4 more days to go..
my question is is it ok to sleep on the side i tried sleeping on my back first few days after surgery but its impossible..
i got tired and i do sleep on my side now..
no pain so far does this mean im good

sleeping on my back after hip surgery was torture. years later more joint replacement surgery i now have no problem sleeping on my back. positioning lots of small pillows under legs in right places heels,dont touch the bed...and shoulders supported by side small pillows has made a huge difference. it takes time to get thru ankle surgery. i broke one ankle and tore ligaments in the other at once by stepping down one step.. yikes..last year. again positioning small 14"x14"pillows in the right places for support makes a world of difference.
