My doctor says I can make long distance drives 6 weeks after microdiscectomy. The key is to stop every 100 miles, get out and walk a bit. Anyone have to make a very long drive, 6-7 weeks after their micro-d? I'm looking at a 10 hour drive and will follow my Doctor's recommendation and stop every hour to get out for a quick walk. I don't have pain driving, currently, so I think this will be a safe activity. Thoughts?
