    Mine wasn't elective but I recovered reasonably well, I was driving myself to hospital to visit bub after 3 weeks. DH took time off before then so I didn't even try to see if I would be OK to drive any earlier!

    6 weeks!
    They wouldn't cover if I was driving before the 6 weeks post op.
    I would call your insurance company to see what their policy is.
    Yes call your insurer. Some will say whenever your ob says it's ok.

    Definitely check your insurer! My policy states I'm not covered for 6 weeks after any major surgery (with SGIO) ... which is why most Obs say to wait.

    8 days. I had terrible mastitis and had to get to the dr. I didn't want to take dd out so dh stayed home and looked after her. Pretty much drove somewhere every few of days after that. I recovered really fast but it came back and bit me in the butt. I ended up with a painful haematoma under my incision. I remember feeling a pinch when I pulled the pram out of the boot on one of those early outings.

    6 days. I'm with Nrma. I rang them and they said if OBS puts no restrictions on you then go for it. My OBS didn't so I drive the day I came home as my filling cameo out and I had to leave bub at home and drive to dentist.
