Medical Card? NEW
by: Dave

I do not currently have a DOT medical card. I failed my first physical due to an Irregular/Irregular heart beat. Subsequent testing has indicated the need for cardiac bypass surgery (no scar tissue). How long after surgery can I get DOT physical clearance?

Driving trucks after surgery
by: hervy

If you have a DOT medical card and the Dr. is familiar with what being a trucking is about and he/she said you were ok to drive, you should be good to go.

For instance these are some terrible roads in many places and you will bounced up and down. I don't know what if any impact that will have on the body that has been worked on, he should.

Best wishes,
Hervy
