      Kevin,

      That is also my understanding. 

      My son is recovering from a head trauma/subdural hematoma.  The neurologist told him that he is not to drive for a year.  He lives in NC and the state law there is 6 months, but his doc doesn't want him to drive for as long as he is on seizure meds which will be at least a year. He will re-evaluate then.   (I don't know if it is different if someone actually had seizures, as my son did.)  You may want to contact the DMV of your state and your insurance company to be sure.

      Are you taking an anti-seizure medication?  If so, may I ask which one? 

      Good luck to you!  I hope you are feeling well and that the WBR is a success.

      Take good care, K.
