a new pillow that really helped me

I am one of those survivors that hate to go to bed at night because I have such a huge problem sleeping and worrying about if I am going to aspirate on any given night. My son saw a commercial on TV about a pillow that was invented by an esophageal cancer patient. A doctor no less. It is called Medcline, it is pricey but I ordered it because I was desperate and because it had a 100 day return if it didn’t help. I have been using it now for about 6 weeks, and my life has changed. It has helped me without a doubt. It really does help. It’s like sleeping in a cocoon. I have tried everything before, and this product works, I am actually happy to go to bed now, I can actually sleep without worrying if I am going to aspirate. You do have to follow your diet, I just cut out any foods with tomato paste, raw onions, any spicy food even pepper. My pillow is worth the money. I am one of those people that even put a long cloth under my armpits tied to the bed post to keep me from sliding down at night, now I don’t worry at all. Give it a try, it helped me and changed my life. I am a 5 year survivor now, and sleeping was important to me, I used to get maybe 2-4 hours interrupted sleep at night because I was constantly pushing myself back up, I even got an adjustable bed, but I slipped down more with that. This pillow is a miracle, go look it up on the website Medcline, and take a look. Right now Medicare does not pay for it, but it can come out of your taxes at the end of the year. I usually do not advocate for a product, but so many of us have this problem and aspirating is like inhaling liquid molten lava. It is the worst thing in the world to deal with, and it burns in your ears, lungs, throat for days after wards. Give it a look and see if it’s right for you. I can only give my experience and I know my quality of life is better because of this.

Hi There!

Thanks for the advice!! Just wondering if this would work for someone who can no longer sleep on their side (me)? Looks like it is positioned for side sleep only? 

Thanks in advance,

SL
