What changes should I make to my sleeping habits after elbow reconstruction surgery?

For better comfort during sleeping, it is recommended to keep a pillow under the forearm.

Your elbow will be placed in a splint that prevents you from straightening your elbow for a week or two. For better comfort, sitting in an inclined position (ie: reclining chair) or having a pillow under the forearm when sleeping may help.
