I am trying to get a OTR job with a company. I have a few medical problems. I have a pacemaker, and because of age a have a over active bladder. Do you think it is a good idea to try to be a driver.

trucking with health issues and medical problems

Well your like me, i have medical problems. i have been driving for sixteen years. And you look at the facts your driving a piece of equipment that can weigh up to eighty thousands pounds very big you need to be in great health and you know how other people drive. So do the math think about your safety and their safety.

And bouncing around in a truck for eleven hours wont help your bladder problem neither. Take care and do the right thing stay at home.
