Hi, I had Turp Surgery a week ago. I am

I had Turp Surgery a week ago. I am wondering if it is acceptable to drive my car on a trip (acutally my wife would drive) of 1,200 miles. We would stop often and I could urinate during the drive if need be. We plan to take at least 2 days maybe 3 for the trip. Then, we plan to fly home after a few days, a 2.5 hour flight. The flight would be 12 days after the surgery.

I underwent TURP surgery three months ago. Thereafter I developed another complication- urine stricture and underwent a minor operation last week. I have just finished taking medications- Amoxicillin and Potassium Clavulanale and Meloxicam tablets as pain killer. What I am now experiencing is the erectile dsyfucntion (soft erection hence cannot enter into vagina)
