As long as you aren't taking any prescription meds, and you feel up to it, you should be ok. Just take it easy. Try to keep your arms close to you as much as you can. It is hard when you drive; practice it now and you will be amazed at how much arm movement is involved. Luckily it is a short drive. I would just double check with your doctor or even ask the nurses what they think. I found they were a great source of info for me when I couldn't get a hold of the doctor.
