I can no longer sleep in my stomach after my ileo first done in 1992, so start off on my side and end up on my back. Seem to turn over onto my back naturally. If I sleep on my side, cause my stoma produces quite a lot even through the night, I have found the bag has been full enough to pull itself away from the flange.
I have arthritis and damaged discs in my neck so 6 years ago we bought a tempur mattress and pillows and this is amazing if you get joint pain, it is like sleeping on air.
