I had a TLIF just over six weeks ago, am still on restrictions due to the long recovery period for this particular surgery. I'd like to get out of the house (cabin fever) but I'm afraid to drive or even ride in a car while there's snow on the streets.
It just seems like Murphy's law would take over and that would be the one time that I'd have a car accident. Plus there are so many stupid drivers out there that don't take into account that the road just might be a bit slippery as they come up behind you at a stop light and lose control of their car.
Does anyone else have this fear of driving or riding in a car post-surgery while there's snow on the streets?
