Is it true that there is a pillow that helps relive the pain after breast cancer surgery?

In brief: More details?

The location and severity of post op pain varies depending on the type of surgery (for example lumpectomy vs mastectomy, lymph node removal or not, reconstruction or not).
The most comfortable sleeping position for each patient will vary depending on the type of surgery, so there is probably not a one-size-fits-all pillow/cushion.
