Havin 4 level fusion, when can I travel?

I am not good at the medical terms, but it is a 4 level fusion in my neck, C-3 to C-7 which is set for April 28th.
I live near Louisville , KY, and my daughter lives in Milwaukee, WI. She can arrange to come and help me for a few days, but then wants to drive me back to WI, a 7+ hour drive.
I have not talked to my surgeon yet about this idea.

Is there any way I will be able to manage doing this? Or is it a foolish idea?
She thinks that if I can stay with her for 2 weeks, then I will be able to manage on my own after that.

My brother can come and help me in mid April if I need it, but there doesn't seem to be anyone available in the first two weeks after surgery at this point.

For those of you that have had a 4 level fusion, could you make this trip?
