Hi Mac & Donna,
My husband asked the doctor this very question when we went in to have his foley removed. The doctor told him to just sit in the car with the engine off and try a few "fake" emergency stops. If it didn't hurt him physically anywhere, to move his foot quickly from the gas pedal to the brake pedal, and he was no longer taking any narcotic pain medicine, he said he was good to go. Hope this helps!
Husband diagnosed May 2006 at age 50. RRP performed 13 July 06.
PSA 5.7, Gleason 3+4=7, Staged T2C, Cancer confined to prostate.
His father diagnosed at age 62 and is currently a 13 year survivor!
