Driving after surgery
« on: July 01, 2006, 09:16:10 PM »
How soon after surgery can you start driving?  I'm driving myself to the surgery center and plan to leave the car in the lot overnight.  I'm staying at a friends place nearby.  Would it be impossible for me to drive my car out the the lot the following day after surgery?

I think driving would be pretty painful on the second day, which from my experience was the worst day as far as pain goes.

I drove second day.  I was in more pain than first day but I could drive about an hour.

If you take the prescibed painkillers than you probably will be told not to drive at all and thus you'll have pain when you drive without them.

Did you other guys really have that much pain the second day even with any painkillers?

I have not been in any "pain" just discomfort. I drove second day no problems. Just gotta take it easy. I drove holding the wheel low as to not raise or stretch the chest area. By day 4 I was feeling great and now I am on day 7 and really feel minor discomfort left. Maybe feels like you do after not working out for a few weeks and then working out again and 2 days later you are really sore. I felt the worst on day 3.
