    I believe as long as your off the pain medicine you can drive. I continued to have discomfort when I had the seatbelt on for too long as a passenger. I would sometimes hold the seatbelt away from my stomach to prevent the discomfort. But if you feel well enough and not on pain medicine I think it’s fine to drive. I would have but my hubby would drive me everywhere, he was extra concer for me :-)

    As long as you are off pain meds you are fine. I was driving less than a week after (was done with pain meds day after), but waited a bit to be safe and my doc said it was a go!

    Generally speaking it is as soon as you are comfortable doing an emergency stop, I was actually OK at 1 week but didn't drive until week 4.

    My hysterectomy was abdominal plus my uterus was attached to my bladder. So drove until I was in no pain honestly.

    Go for your check up first mine was about 8 weeks after my op same thing full hysterectomy safest option if you feel well enough just don't over do things I was itching to go shopping but then found couldn't carry the bags all the way to car ask someone for help it only takes you to pull something and you will be back to square one good luck and hope you feeling good I was . Nearly 12 months now couldn't feel better x
