Car Driving and Biking after LL
« on: January 11, 2021, 09:31:01 PM »

hi, how much time does it take after LL to do a perfect, safe car driving (as good as pre LL).

Does it bother going long drives or continuously driving for 2-3hrs a day.

Is driving in Manual transmission more fatigue full, than Automatic cars.

Now I know LL does take a toll on your athleticism to some extent, but say you ae into professional car racing will your performance be compromised post LL.

I think you should be fine, probably the worst factor is not being able to practice for a while after surgery.

I have to put the seat all the way back with the back rest all the way forward or else my knees bump the dash.  It makes driving less comfortable and more fatiguing.

How much time does it take to be able to drive after the surgery, say 5 cm on TIBIA.

When people talk about athleticism loss they mean stuff like contact or speed sports.
I’m sure you’ll have absolutely no problem driving, even in competitions (obv as long as you fit well in the car lol)
Drive a car is one of the useful first thing you are able to do with no discomfort, way easier than walk for example. The weight you put of the leg is very light and the movement is always natural

It's possible to drive as soon as you are off pain meds, however, it's generally advised to wait until some consolidation has occurred because if you have to slam on the breaks, you could end up putting a ton of force through the rod.
