Breast biopsy: Place a pillow under your left side, which will assist in going to sleep, but you may wake several times since movement in sleep will cause pressure on the biopsy site. The pain is not harmful, but you may have several nights will little sleep. Ask your surgeon for some pain medications, which will help in the short run.

Ask MD: Usually you do not put pressure on the side operated upon; therefore sleep on the non-operated side. Ask your surgeon to be sure. Hope everything will be okay.
