Does anyone have any tips on how to train myself to sleep on my back, when I'm naturally a stomach-sleeper? I've been talking with other women who have had lumpectomies, and as I feared, I'm going to have to sleep on my back for a while during recovery. I've never been able to do this unless I take a sleeping pill, which is not a good long-term option. Even if I start out by lying on my back and getting myself super relaxed and even if I'm exhausted, there's always that final moment before dozing off when I automatically roll over onto my stomach.
HELP! I'm thinking maybe I should start practicing back-sleeping now, BEFORE surgery, so that I'll be used to it by the time I really need it.
