I just had a breast reduction on 3/26 3 days ago and was wondering how long I have to sleep propped up. Laying flat on my back doesn't hurt and being propped up is starting to hurt my neck. I haven't needed pillows under my arms either. Thank you in advanced for answers. I just want to make sure I won't cause problems or ruin results.
Sleeping on Back After Breast Reduction?

Sleeping propped up on your back will help with swelling and keep you from putting too much weight on your breasts. Unfortunatley this is difficult for side or belly sleepers. Try loweing or changing your pillows and adjusting your position. If it hurts. don't do it. All the best.
