I definitely recommend sleeping sitting up if you can, like in a recliner or something. I found it extremely hard to get in and out of bed. Make sure people know NOT to make you laugh the first few days..it will hurt really bad! When you cough, sneeze, or laugh, hold something over your incision, even if it's just your hand. It DEFINITELY takes the pain away. I would suggest to take your pain medicine about 15 minutes earlier than you're supposed to. That way it won't start to wear off as much.
