Ok so--I have this big honkin(thank CJ) brace on my big honkin leg and I feel like I'm trapped. HOW do you sleep like this?

    I used pillows; they really made a difference!

    I put a pillow between my legs and slept on my side. I eventually got to the point when I could take it off at night - that was when I wore it during the day.

    I NEVER HAD A BRACE TO DEAL WITH.

SLEEP WAS ALWAYS THE WORST TIME AFTER MY KNEE REPLACEMENT OPERATIONS. I MOSTLY SLEPT IN MY LAZY BOY CHAIR.

BUT IN BED, I USED MULTIPLE PILLOWS TO FIND SOME FORM OF COMFORT AND RELIEF.

GOOD LUCK SWEETY.

    hmm... the pillow idea is gr8. How 'bout a few body pillows & one to wedge between your legs to cushion them from each other when you want to sleep on your side? Or... why not wear the thing during the DAY & NOT at night? Seems logical that you NEED to brace the leg during ACTIVE hours anyway. That way... when your not applying use and strain YOU and that leg can rest.

    Got lots of pillows? I would try lying on my back with pillows on either side of the cast. Might need an extra pillow to elevate your head. Try listening to some nice music to get to sleep or take any meds that they might have given you. Good luck!!
