, I had bell's palsy a month ago starting at the end of February

Resolved Question:

Hi, I had bell's palsy a month ago starting at the end of February when I was advised not to drive due to the fact that my eye could become dehydrated. But now there is no facial paralysis and I can blink my eye perfectly normally, does this mean it is now safe for me to drive?
