If you have surgery on your left foot, you can return to driving as soon as you are no longer taking pain medication. For most people, this is about 1 week or less after surgery. If your surgery is on the right foot, it could be as soon as 2 weeks that you can drive afterwards if it is a simple surgery or 4-10 weeks if the surgery was more complex. Your doctor can give you a more specific answer, if you need to know just make an appointment to discuss!
