    MKL,

     

    Thanks for your question.  There is no textbook answer to this question as it depends on many factors.  These include your particular surgery, your particular recovery course, any complications that might have occurred post-operatively (delay in healing, infection, abnormal cardiac rhythms), other underlying medical conditions, and your doctors.  The final decision will be your physicians', and it would be best to consult with your surgeon and/or cardiologist for their clearance to get behind the wheel again.

    Best wishes for your continued recovery.

     

    Martin Cane, M.D.
