      <p style=”text-align: right;”>For those who need to be propped up at night: I bought a wedge per my pulmonary PA’s suggestion. I placed it under the mattress and I don’t slip off though the night. Helps with GERD. Cost , $50</p>

      I have  an adjustable bed- it’s a life saver- highly recommend if you have difficulty sleeping flat – my cough as exasperated by being flat – best thing we ever did.

      I also found not eating late at night helped the reflux that was set off the coughing.

      Best thing I ever did and I still sleep on a slope after transplant.

      I can sleep better with less coughing at night

      I suffer from gerd as well as new lungs.

      Before surgery, my old lungs and oxygen were a must and sleeping on a slope was very beneficial

        Thanks for sharing your experience. I am just now being prepared to be placed on a transplant list. Would love to hear that experience if you want to share.
