It got to be a pain, pun not intended, stacking up pillows so my wife could elevate her leg after hip surgery to control swelling. The Elevation Pillow was just the thing at just the right time. We feel we can control the swelling as well as being much more comfortable for sleeping without worrying about going against protocols since the leg channel kept her leg in the correct position all night. Well worth twice, at least, the cost.

Wonderfully useful pillow
I used this pillow for weeks after ankle surgery to keep my foot elevated. It was useful because not only diid it elevate the feg and foot but was so much better because it had the channel for the leg so the leg and foot didn't flop around.
