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!

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.

Ten days. My insurance said they had no policy on this when I rang them.

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.
