Think it also depends on which side is affected too. Mine was right side and the hardest thing was closing the car door! I drove after 3/4 weeks but it was painful. Also you would have to watch where the seatbelt sits on the dressings etc. Always choose "drive through" spaces in car parks etc to save you reversing as well. And be very careful about what you lift during the first few weeks, even a kettle seems heavy, so no children, however much you may want to!
Hope all goes well for your op

I have a masectomy booked for jan (no reconstruction yet) and wanted to know how long others had been since op and driving?....I live in the sticks and can use online shopping etc but want to be able to pick up my children from their after school activities etc as soon as possible..
Also any advice on post care single masectomy gratefully received.
