Shattered Heel... when will I drive?

I am going to the doc this week. It has been 12 weeks since surgery so I am expecting to be able to put weight on the foot. I am wandering when some of you all got to drive...............

Re: Shattered Heel... when will I drive?

Hi, I just started driving last week...11 weeks after surgery. It probably depends on what foot you had operated on. I had my left foot operated on & am still wearing the aircast. I wasn't allowed to drive 'till last week because the foot needed elevated.

Good luck to you. Zoeys Grammy

Re: Shattered Heel... when will I drive?

I went to the doc and he said a couple of weeks to drive. I am starting to put full weight on the foot. Doc said with assistance or not. Just however I feel most comfortable. Of course it hurts the heel when putting weight on it. I know that is expected but exactly what should I expect in regards to the pain/pressure?
