Helping you make a speedy recovery after a thyroidectomy

Driving

Your insurance company should be informed about your operation. Some companies will not insure drivers for a number of weeks after surgery, so it’s important to check what your policy says.

Driving - An exercise

Before resuming driving, you should be free from the sedative effects of any painkillers you may be taking. You should be comfortable in the driving position and able to safely control your car, including freely performing an emergency stop.

Practise the basic movements you need to drive safely. Do this in a safe place without putting the key the ignition. In particular, you should be able to easily turn your head to see around you. Reversing, as well as checking for blind spots whilst driving, both place a strain on your neck - it’s important to avoid this while you are recovering. It is advisable not to restart driving with a long journey.
