We live in a very small town with no traffic. No stop lights. My husband drove the few blocks to the store at about 5 weeks post transplant. Longer drives (such as several hours) we still share driving or I drive because driving causes him to have dry eyes and he is a little less confident in areas that are unfamiliar than he used to be.
After the staples were out and drains were all out and a couple of weeks of healing…maybe around 4-5 weeks post transplant he was able to get comfortable on his side. We also added a 4” foam topper to our bed, which helped a lot!
We are hoping this transplant lasts his lifetime! Hope not to ever do it again, so going to take meds on schedule and do everything in our power to make it last. If it ever comes to that—we know God will give us the strength when we get there, but try not to worry now. We are ready to live again!
Hope you are healing well.
