After 4 post-op weeks in casts that were causing me tremendous pain because they were rubbing on my incision my OS put me in the boot. He said I could sleep with it of if I wanted to. The first night I did not sleep with the boot. About 5:30 AM I had a dream and moved the foot very quickly. It woke me upi and scared the you know what out of me. The next two weeks I had very restless nights trying to sleep wit it on. Turns out all the velcro on the boot does not allow the boot to move well on bedding. It took me a few nights of trying to sleep with it off until I was comfortable having it off all night. Once I got over the fear of hurting myself with it off I had no problem at all. Just give it a try and I am betting you will be fine.
Btw, I hope you got my email about this..
