This is because you will be groggy from the anesthesia and may not be able to drive safely. You will also need someone to help you with your basic needs, such as getting up and going to the bathroom.

If you do not have someone who can drive you home, you will need to arrange for a taxi or ride-sharing service. Your doctor’s office may be able to help you with this.

No, it is generally not recommended to drive yourself home after FTM (Female to Male) oophorectomy surgery. The surgery is considered a major procedure, and you will likely be under the effects of anesthesia and pain medication, which can impair your coordination, reaction time, and judgment.

It is important to arrange for someone to accompany you to the surgery and drive you home afterward. Ideally, this person should be a responsible adult who can assist you in case of any immediate postoperative needs. If you do not have someone available, you may need to arrange for a taxi, ride-sharing service, or medical transportation to ensure a safe journey home.

Your healthcare provider will provide specific instructions regarding transportation and postoperative care. It is important to follow these guidelines to ensure your safety and promote a smooth recovery.
