As I remember she suggested a soft so as not to bend my head backwards .. stiff was for people that sleep on their backs or sides.

As important as the stuffing in your pillows .. the stuffing in your stomach! Do you have any idea how many little oxygen buggies are walking around town each day because we are eat our last meal too late in the day .. do you have a non functioning esophagus valve .. and are you aspirating your stomach contents all night. It really messes up your lungs. Yes, really! Do most doctors have a clue .. well, what do you suppose?

We eat at sun up and about 2:00 PM. Our stomachs are empty at night. Oh, I can't do that I get hungry. Wake up, you are supposed to fast about two days per month .. some do it one day a week .. and hunger feelings are not the end of the world .. look at Bangladesh for Pete's Sake.
I am having another neck surgery and I have been wondering if I cracked (fractured T-2) because of the way I lay and watch TV in bed? Do I need a wedge of foam for watching TV? And maybe a new pillow that keeps my neck stable.

Default Hi whispers

Hello, and maybe I have a suggestion. I have had two cervical fusions. Pillows are a big deal. Bed, Bath and Beyond, has memory foam, from soft to firm and everywhere inbetween. Also an elevated memory foam type pillow works good too. Have not tried the one on TV, as so far, so good for my new pillows. I have a rather flat memory foam, and a thicker one, both very different. Hope you find some comfort. Anytime there is a back issue, or a neck issue, it is important to find that one that works. ginnie
