Hello All...how strict is or was your bedrest experience. My docs had me laying STRICTLY on my left side...I could spend 25% of my time on my right and 75% on my left, they would not allow me to lay on my back...for 5 weeks, it was horrific!!!! Is this style of bedrest typical? I don't think it would have been traumatic if I had been able to at least change positions more often. My ribs hurt, I got stiff, I'd find excuses like going to the bathroom just to get up. Lots of people who have never experienced this don't understand why I was so upset by being on bedrest, I guess they saw it as a vacation. I felt like a prisoner in my own body. Anyone else feel the same?
