Craniotomy in 9 days
I love hearing the success stories! Thank you 😊. I hope mine goes as smoothly as yours. I’m an eternal pessimist and my mind is reeling, thinking about each and every possible complication. I didn’t think about the DMV…

Regarding the DMV, I was told by the neurosurgeon and Physical therapy doctor to not drive until I was cleared by the DMV to do, but it was entirely on the honor system, as no one confiscated my license and I was not suspended. I followed the rules because I did I not want to cause an auto accident and I was concerned that, if I was involved in an incident, whether my fault or the other guy’s, would my insurance cover me, given the situation? So, I gotta my doctor’s and my opthamologist s approvals, and then passed the DMV written and practical exams, just like a teenager getting my first license, and then resumed driving again. The whole process took about 3 months. I could have ignored the neurosurgeon’s comment and kept on driving anyway and no one would have known the difference, but it was ethically the wrong thing to do and I am glad that I took the path that I followed. Best of luck to you, as your surgery date looks to be approaching soon.
