 Re: Driving after a cast

Hi MaKayla,

Congratulations on all the progress. So good to hear. Actually, I am not entirely sure that driving with a brace is a good idea. Did the doctor actually say it was? I would think waiting until you were completely mobile and had done at least some physio would be recommended. I did not break the right, but a few times broke the left leg. I remember driving stick was an issue, as I used both feet. Perhaps an automatic is easier. But I found strength, comfort, reflexes were compromised for a time. I found traveling for short distances before taking rest stops really helped. One thing I did learn in short order was that braking function was not determined simply by being able to walk unaided.

Best wishes,
Matt
