Can I sleep without the brace after surgery and how to get comfortable and use pillows.
This knee surgery has been very difficult for me I really wasn't explaining much about it I just jumped into the surgery had the surgery and was sent home with a sheet of paper that told me I could bare away this tolerate it and to shower with a trash bag over my leg. I returned to have the stitches taken out they unlocked my brace and sent me on my way and told me to sign up for physical therapy. I had my surgery on the 7th today is the 25th my first question is when can I sleep without this brace on.
My second question is is how do you use the pillows and getting comfortable can I sleep on my side? My third question is does anyone else experience numbness still this far after the surgery?
