How long after an appendectomy can one drive?

how long after having an appendectomy can I drive a car. I was out of the hospital the following day. It has been a week now since I had the operation. I feel good and have had no problems. I had Laparoscopic and no longer taking my pain pill just my amoxicillin.

Hello Dear.

Thank you for using Healthcare Magic. I read your query and I understand your concern. I think having an appendectomy does not have contraindications of not letting someone to drive. If you feel okay, you can do it.

Best Regards.
