You can't drive until you are off pain meds. I have hip pain after I walk 30 minutes, possibly because the surgeon straightened my leg (the osteotomy cocked it a bit), and the need to getu used to that, or be occurring because one leg is stronger than the other,. I went to the y yesterday for 3 hours (had to wait for my ride), felt fine there, but woke in serious pain.

I had a lot of scar tissue from previous surgeries removed when they did my TKR, so I probably am not going to have a typical recovery. Pain pills don't make recovery pain free, more like tolerable. I am not ready to give them up, but not driving is awfully inconvenient.
