    Post-op GERD surgery
    bct1991 posted:
    Had a successful surgery (laparoscopically) for GERD 3 weeks ago. At what point can I start sleeping flat? I currently have an adjustable bed and am waiting patiently (pretty much) for the day when I will be able to sleep flat. I'm watching my diet closely and walking daily. Everything seems to be going well.

    Bct, call your doc and ask. Each doc seems to have his/her own protocol of things they like you to do.
