Hey, how has everyone been sleeping? Have you had any difficulty sleeping or do you have any tips for getting a good nights sleep with a stoma?
I’ve been sleeping awfully since my surgery at the end of last month. The most consecutive sleep I’d had until last night was 6 hours. But for me it’s not down to the stoma. Just plain old insomnia as far as I can tell.
ive gone from being a side / front sleeper to having to sleep on my back.side sleeping is far too uncomfortable and painful at the moment. I get sleep paralysis when i sleep on my back so that’s been fun... =(
Hi Christa, I have an ileostomy and started off sleeping on my right side but recently due to reflux have had to change to my left side. It takes a bit of getting used to but it's a new way to sleep. I don't see why you should sleep on your back. Just try to relax.
