Glad to hear you are on the road to recovery. I had my GB out Feb 23/05 by the lap surgery as well. The first few days are going to be tough, at least they were for me. Best thing was to sit with legs up and pillow behind back. As for sleeping, i was able to lie on my back only for the first few weeks at least. It hurts to actually bend yourself into the lying down position, but once u are there you'll be okay. I found side sleeping was impossible for the first month almost -muscles were incredibily sore and that hurt so much. Ask if you need any other advice!
