Thanks for asking me to respond. Yes you can sleep sideways. If you have a fracture, it's advisable to have the leg in a cast or boot. Without a car or boot, it will not be advisable to put weight on your leg while walking. You will have to walk without putting weight on the legs. And to assist you in doing that you will need a pair of elbow crutches. A good physio center can provide you with the crutches and show you how to walk without being weight on the leg. Continue the medicines until complete relief from pain. Good luck!
