I had an hour car ride home and it wouldn't have been bad, but in Ohio in February there are A LOT of potholes:( and that was the worst of the ride. You can always have the nurse give you one last pain pill for the road so you know you'll be comfortable...
OMG ---- yes, I do remember the roads in OH when I had my surgery. And, yes, potholes and railroad tracks to tend to hurt! Rightfully so. Taking the pain med for the trip home was always what I did for any of my surgeries. Also, take some extra pillows in the car to help make you more comfy.
