I had the same problem with the post-op abductor pillow. I'd always find it on the floor or in the bed the next morning.

Finally, I cut off the Velcro straps on the hospital issued pillow and used a thing called GripTwists to atttach it to my legs before going to sleep.

GripTwists are just some wire inside a foam core, which you can twist together into any shape.

It stays there and it's comfortable.

If you look at their Web site at www.griptwists.com you can see what they are.

To make it work, I had to slice a hole in the middle of the abductor pillow to run them through.

Hope this helps!

Bob
