    my insurance said whenever my obs said I could.

    My obs said I could drive when I could hop on 1 leg with no pain. Which I promptly did for him before leaving hospital

    I drove after about 10 days ...


    After having ankle surgery last year, I wasnt allowed to drive for 6 weeks. That was HARD !!!

    Hubby went back to work when bub was 2 1/2 weeks and I know I drove before that so probably 2 weeks. I got a carrier though so I didn't have to lift the pram in and out of the car.

    I checked with my insurer and they didn't have a limit on it, it was just when I felt safe to do so.

    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.
    Definitely call your insurance company. Some cover you when you're ready (ours did) but others don't.

    I checked with our insurance while driving home from the hospy, then picked up dinner that night. Got groceries the next day. Had to hit the ground running, DP and DSDs sat around like lumps until DP flew back to work
