Sleeping in a recliner after hip replacement surgery

As per title, I’ve read up on many sites regarding reclining chairs. Some say it’s a good thing and some it’s not good, so just thought I’d ask all you fine hippies if sleeping on a recliner Is ok or not, I’ve never slept on my back and this worries me ahead of my thr. If the recliner is bad, why are they bad etc.

As ever any help most appreciated. :grinning:

Stay safe
