Here's a quick piece of advice: NEVER drive your Lotus only a couple of weeks after major surgery. You will be sorry. :eek:

ehh, I did it the same day.... That is if you can call having wisdom teeth removed "major" surgery. Come to think of it I bet the pain killers were kicking in by then.

I tried to go see the surgeon for a post-op office visit four days after abdominal surgery. I made it about half way into the car and decided this was not going to be a good experience. I called a cab.
Exactly. I decided since it was nice out the other day to try and take the Elise for a spin. The thing is, I was only 2 weeks from the kidney transplant I had done. I thought I was going to pop my staples out. That ride did not last real long. :crazyeyes

I can’t imagine the pain… I have difficulty getting in and out of my Exige after I eat Mexican…

Up and going out for a drive after a Kidney transplant…:crazyeyes I would still be medicated…

Such is the power of the Lotus! Even after major surgery, it's hard to resist!
Congrats on the successful surgery-get back in the saddle soon.

Well on the bright side...It's only a little bit of Physical pain that'll go away soon right? Think about loving a Lotus for a year or so, and NOT HAVING A LICENSE :sad: The emotional pain will never go away xD

You and I should start a support group for organ transplant recipients who also own Elises! :up:

Congratulations on your new lease on life and good luck with your recovery...
