I haven't had it yet. It suppose to be on May 20th. A couple of weeks after that date my grandson might be working a year in Mexico which is a 1500 mile trip. If I can't drive I'll at least be a passenger, he is only 24 years old. I am on a cancellation waiting list and hopefully they can move it up. I'll check driving with a sling laws. How was your shoulder after the accident? I am left handed so that would make it easier. Thanks for your reply.

Hi there @car54. So…you have a surgery coming up May 20 and need to get back on the road again. That time, mine surgery was a reverse replacement on the right shoulder. Because of the immobilizer, I think the pain was quantifiably less than the series of rotator cuffs and cadaver grafts. Shoulder didn't suffer, my bumper did.

A good followup to check the driving with sling laws. Will you be in CA?
Be healthy and at ease today. Chris
