I was told not to drive for 2 weeks, but out of necessity I had to bring my 5 yr old to the opthalamologist only 5 days post-op. I didn't take any pain meds that day before bringing him. I also used a pillow over my abdominal incision to protect it from the seat belt.
Remember to follow your Dr's orders. I'm definitely (?sp) not a model patient were this is concerned.

My paperwork said 3 wks. I drove for the first time at a week and a half to Thanksgiving dinner at work. I work at a securred facility so noone is allowed thru the gates other than badged employees so I had no choice. It was the first day I actually felt like i was able to drive and it wasn't that far at all. I did have my daughter drive me to my post op appt later that week just in case anyone was watching. She also took me to my 1 week appt to get my staples removed. No way could I have drove then even if I had wanted to. It was almost 3 weeks before i had a outing and it was to the grocery store. I would check with your dr as far as his restrictions. As long as your on the pain med's driving is not a option.

Thanks for your quick replies! Is that why you are not supposed to drive, due to the pain meds? I hate taking meds and I will try to suffer if that means I can drive a little!
