Slept like a baby last night (see below pic). I haven't experienced any pain since the procedure. There is a bit of tightness in my scalp which is expected.

Post-op instructions said to sleep at a 45 degree angle, but I found that to be very uncomfortable, so I cheated a bit and stacked 2 pillows followed by a neckroll pillow on top (I think I got to 35 degrees?). The neckroll was 10 bucks at bed bath and beyond. I'm a side sleeper, and if you are too I highly recommend getting one of these. It lets your head be kind of suspended in air, so there is virtually no chance of the grafts touching anything. I felt almost as comfortable as I do on most nights. My alarm woke me up after 11 hours of sleep.
