Every once in a while I get STUCK in my bed.  I wake up, and I cannot move.  It happens when I sleep on my stomach.  I am normally a 'side-sleeper'.   Sometimes I move to my stomach, like this morning; then I wake up and I find I can't move.  It feels like the muscles across my chest are completely frozen or stiff.  It hurts.  It feels like I cannot move.  When it happens, I usually wake my husband up and have him take me by the shoulder and roll me over.   I am able to do it on my own, it takes a lot of concentration and effort; not to mention it hurts.  As soon as I am no longer lying on my expanders the relief is immediate.

I hope this will change once my permanent implants are in.  Or maybe it will pass over time.

I should mention it doesn't happen every night.  One of those weird side-effects of having the surgery.
