It was easier to sleep in a recliner than in a bed.  Every movement was done in a slow motion fashion.  I kept a small pillow nearby to hold against my belly in case I needed to cough.

As a nurse, I would tell my post op pt make sure you take your pain medication before the pain gets out of control and make sure you are using a pillow to splint your abd when moving,coughing etc...continue to do your walking and deep breathing exercises.  Remember the pain will pass light is at the end of the tunnel.
