    Hanging,
    Can you sleep on your left side in bed? Maybe a pillow in front and behind you to keep you from rolling?

    I just had spine surgery and had to arrange something along those lines to stay sane.......or not go insaner-er.
    Look up before you hook up!!

    . . . or sleep in a recliner chair?
    I broke my clavicle (motorcyle) long ago and wished I had tried that.
    Getting into and out of bed was the worst!

    I would wait until 3-4 weeks of healing before I would try a hammock.

    I broke my clavicle in a motorcycle accident this summer and pounded the stuffing out of my ancient self. Hammock was out of the question, but sleeping in bed with a few pillows to keep me at about a 30* angle worked well.

    i dont move when i sleep, i lay on my back and wake up in the same position. im fortunate in that regard.

    I REALLY wish i had a recliner an an anti gravity chair it would be so much easier

    Millarky, we live in Florida, it's still 70 degrees down here this week. LOL.
    About an hour after I wrote my response I realized you probably live in a more hospitable clime than I . Heal well and ride on.

    All these suggestions are good choices to try. Hopefully one of them will work for you. Dang things hurt like the dickens. I broke a rib coughing, yes coughing, over Thanksgiving. Still hurts.

    Get a Blackbird and flip around the other way, and use the footbox as a clavicle box.
