Yesterday was the two-month anniversary of my right knee replacement surgery from June 26. Diane took me out to a local school parking lot and I drove around in the Rogue demonstrating that my surgical leg could indeed press the accelerator and brake. When Diane was satisfied with my driving skills, I took her home, dropped her off and went to visit my Mom. On the way, I visited the newly opened Super Wal-Mart in North Tonawanda. I visited the Library. Later, I drove to the pool. After two months of chauffeuring me around, Diane was ready for me to begin driving again. We played it safe, we were cautious. Most knee surgery patients go back to driving six to eight weeks after their surgery. Last year, after my left knee surgery, I was driving after six weeks. But, of course, the left leg doesn’t hit the brake or accelerator (at least not in the manner I was taught to drive). This time around, we waited a little longer for my right leg to build back its strength in Physical Therapy. So far, so good.
