It was just over 1.5 weeks before I was able to drive again, and then only for short distances because neck pain made the experience uncomfortable (like Sharon, I didn't drive until after I'd stopped Percocet and Norco for pain).
Family helped me the first few weeks, to take me to appointments, etc.
It's really been only in the last few weeks that the neck pain has pretty much gone away when I drive (I'm now 7 weeks post-procedure), so I'm not as limited by distance or length of time behind the wheel. This improvement for me started about the same time that I started physical therapy for my tweaked shoulder (excuse the highly technical term), so the improvement in neck pain may have been related to the PT work.
My shoulder is still tweaked but it is getting better slowly, and it doesn't interfere with driving.
