Find the best sleeping position
Finding a comfortable sleeping position is always essential to expediting the healing process. Many women who have undergone a mastectomy find sleeping on the unaffected side the most comfortable. You may want to put a pillow under your breasts in certain side positions. Sleeping with a wedge pillow is also a good way to sleep on your side or back as the angle can create more comfort. Sleeping at an angle requires less effort in sitting up, thus saving your energy. You can find a number of different types of wedge pillows online.
