I keep hearing that women need to sleep in a recliner after the mastectomy. Is that true? I don't own a recliner & cannot afford one. Has anyone been OK sleeping flat? Or are there wedge pillows I can use, or other options? I'm having a right side only mastectomy hopefully next week. I still don't have a date set yet but I go in tomorrow to meet my new doctor & I'm desperate to get this cancer out & start treating. I've been waiting forever & it's making me nuts. Plus I'm in pain! My arms hurts a lot. Is that normal? And I'm worried the lump got bigger. Ah, the anxiety really sucks. Thanks for any help!
