    It’s totally up to you they say whenever you feel comfortable, I tried when I was 9 days post op and my arms where still stiff abit and struggled with my belt and wheel. I am now 13 days post op and tried again today which I am so much better and can move


    I was wondering this too, is it hard to get into gear ?

    I had unders and left it until 3 weeks due to pain and difficulty moving my arms. My friend was driving after a week. My surgeon said as long as you can do an emergency stop and manovre the steering wheel and use gears without discomfort you can drive. Usually about 1-2 weeks depending on your pain
