How long before you can drive short distances?

You need to check w/ your dr. first. I had my TAH/LSO on 10/23 and had to wait 2 weeks post-op to drive. It felt weird at first, not being in the passenger seat. Take your time and relax, you'll be fine.

How long before you can drive short distances?

My doc said that I could drive at 2 weeks, but truly, I just haven't felt up to the task. Like others have said, I just don't feel comfortable, considering that riding is not all that fun. I just don't feel that my reaction time would be good since I'm so conscious of hurting my belly. I agree with the turning and backing.

I drive a 5 speed and just don't see that at all. I'd need to trade out with one of my other family drivers, also. this could work, though.

I was told two weeks as long as I was not on any narcotics. I had surgery on the 9th and started driving again last week. So far so good but my recovery has been much faster than expected and without any complications.
