The Recovery Process
Side Lying And Headboard Cushioning
Another comfortable option for some Miami FUE patients is to lay on their side and utilize airplane cushions to take pressure off certain areas of the scalp. You can place a pillow along with your headboard above the head just in case you shift up and bump your head in the night. You may also find it helpful to arrange body pillows or a few cushions along your back and front, preventing you from rolling over in your sleep.
Take Your Medication
Lots of people take the approach of “tough it out” after a surgical procedure and avoid taking their pain medication. We don’t advise you to try this because there’s really no benefit and you’ll sleep less comfortably. Your analgesic medication will help reduce inflammation and minimize discomfort which allows youto sleep comfortably. If you feel bothersome throbbing or itching, your surgeon can prescribe medication with a sedative or anti-itch component. For the first few days when swelling and discomfort are at their peak, don’t hesitate to take medication as prescribed that will make you feel better and sleep deeply.
