← Return to Left total shoulder replacement: Why can't I drive for 6 weeks?

Comment receiving replies

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

No I wont be in CA. It would be a trip from Auburn, Alabama to Aguascalientes, Mexico. As much as I would not want to delay the surgery it might be best to put it off for a couple of weeks. Its a long trip and it would definitely be safer with 2 arms.
