I'm in the same boat since 12/7 and am sleeping with the cast on. Although, I would be more comfortable without it I'm heeding the Doctor's advice and keeping it on. However, I sleep on my side or stomach and do not keep it elevated otherwise I don't think I'd sleep at all.
Not sure if this is helpful but just thought I'd share.
