Do you think that a 6 hour car ride would be bad with the seatbelt and what not?...also, how long did it take you to come back to everyday activities or working out?
A 6 hour ride should be fine, especially on percocet :-) As long as you're not the driver.
I had the surgery on a Friday morning and was at work Monday morning, although I have to admit I was pretty tired at work that week. After 10 days I started Dr. Meyers' rehab program (pool walking, etc...). At 3 weeks I was doing some light jogging.
I only had my left side done and my recovery went pretty quickly. Everyone is different regarding recovery time. You need to let pain be your guide to a certain extent.
Good luck Meyers is a great guy.
