Sleeping After Surgery

One of my big concerns for the period after surgery is sleeping. Specifically the need to sleep in an inclined position due to swelling and sleeping on my back (I'm a "side-sleeper"). I thought of sleeping in the recliner or propping the head of the mattress up but neither one really appealed to me.

While walking around Ikea the other weekend I spotted a twin-sized “slatted” bed named "Malm" (pictured below) that actually inclines on the head-board end.

You can’t see it in this picture but, trust me, the head-board end inclines like a lounge chair and is, surprisingly, rather comfortable. Plus, I bought the "Medium Brown" version ... looks much better!
