1 doctor agrees

In brief: Varies

Your surgeon will give you advise on the particular operation you undergo.
That would be on your discharge instructions.

In brief: Indeterminate

Although this question is more appropriate for an orthopedic surgeon, under no circumstance would it be wise to drive while taking narcotics for post-operative pain.
