I had my sah last December which was treated with coiling and a flow diverting stent. I surrendered my driving licence in March as DVLA told me not to drive for 6 months. I have reapplied and am struggling with providing medical info. They have written to the consulant who oversaw my initial treatment in Dec 2015 and who I haven't clapped eyes on since. I've told them about another consultant I saw early Seot but that was onky for a general "how are you getting on" type informal chat although she did say I was discharged (nothing in writing though). Throughout my time in hospital and the brain injury rehab unit I hardly ever saw a consultant.
I have asked DVLA if they would accept a statement of suitability from my GP and am waiting on their reply. The frustrating thing is that my recovery has been excellent. How have others here dealt with the driving licence situation? Is the GP the best route?
