Driving and surgery

For those of you who have had temporal lobe surgery, how long did you have to wait until you could drive again?


I've had surgery back in 1998

I've had surgery back in 1998 and was able to get my license after the  6 month seizure free law/state policy in Michigan.  I did have to have medical papers to give to the state to prove that I was seizure free for that time.I have had to give up my driving priveliges a couple times because I was having seizures again and have to wait the six months.
