Post TKR day 26 Driving

Posted , 4 users are following.

Spoke with my car insurance company over getting back behind the wheel. They advised I know my body best and if I feel ok to drive go for it! So bit the bullet and drove round the block, I had left knee done and drive a manual it was fine!

    Wow that's awesome! Your clutch leg is going to get quite the work out. Where do you live? In the US it's up to the surgeon to give us the green light. Our car insurance companies could probably care less. LOL. I'm post TKR right side day 19. I think it's gonna be a couple weeks at least for me.

    I had right knee done. I could not drive until about nine weeks.
