In the paperwork I got today it suggests having friends or family to pick me up but I am unable to organise that.
I would not even consider driving if I was going to have a general anesthetic.
I am assuming they suggests not driving after local anesthetic because this could put strain on the stitches but I will put the seat right back and don’t need to change gear.
I would be sitting in a similar position in a Taxi.
The surgery is on a Saturday morning, have to be at hospital for 7:30 am. Expect I will have to sit and relax before leaving the hospital.
