I Recently Had A Heart Attack Treated With A Stent. Can I Drive My Car?

Question: I recently had a heart attack treated with a stent. Can I drive my car?

Answer: After a heart attack and after stenting, it is safe to drive your car. Although you want to give yourself a week or two to recuperate and get your strength back because driving a car does involve close-attention driving and some strength. And so to allow some recuperation period before you get back driving is a reasonable suggestion.
