Re: Is there hip pillow?
Some people recommend a knee/hip pillow--sort of butterfly shaped--that you put between your knees when sleeping on your side. That helped relieve pain on hip when I would sleep on the unaffected side. But, didn't really ease the pain on the affected hip. And of course I traditionally slept on the affected hip. It was hard to switch sides.
What I wound up doing before my surgery is to use a long body pillow and put it between my legs when sleeping then, I'd also put another regular pillow at my lower back, hip level--sort of stuffing it in place to give me a little support in the back area--its hard to explain really but I would up having cushion between the knees and support in the back that eased the pressure on the hip. Of course I got comments from my boyfriend about being in a fortress of pillows....
Hope this helps.
