This might work for you, depending upon which leg is angry with you. In US (and most of the civilized world), the accelerator and break pedal is operated with the right foot and the left foot either works the clutch pedal or does nothing. Maybe you can adapt to other-foot breaking?


After foot/ankle surgery on he right leg, my Mom had an adapter fitted to her (automatic) car to let her operate the gas/brake with her left foot. It was a pain to un/reinstall, so when I needed to move it around the driveway once I tried operating the car with it still in place. It was a massive brain Elephant | [mastadon] , I didn't cause an accident but having to actively think about every operation instead of relying on muscle memory slowed my operation down to a crawl.

Depending on how long you're on the disabled list, wrong foot driving might be worth considering; but find an empty parking lot to practice in for a while first and avoid any high traffic/etc areas until you're feeling confident in what you're doing.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
