I used to see a lot of post about suggestions of sleeping.
My husband is almost 6 months out from his surgery and finally seems to be doing better. He just started back to work today!
The biggest issue he is having is with acid reflux at night. He seems to slope down from the wedge pillow and other mound of pillows on the bed.
This causes the acid to come up and he aspirates this acid and ends up with pnuemonia. This has happend 3 times now.
He tries to limit what he eats and when but it still occurs even 8 hours after he ate.
So.....looking for sleeping methods others have used. I am going to look into a raised bed but I really don't want to sleep elivated. I don't want him to sleep in a chair, I want him to sleep with me. He wants to continue to camp and travel when possible (he has always been a very active guy)....he is worried he can no longer do these things.
This cancer has taken so much already, I just want to make sure some normalcy is returned to his life.
What works for other to keep the reflux away?
