I drove a stick for years without a problem

Thanks! I didn't know if it would prevent a flare up or cause one. And I don't want to pay 5 years on a car I won't be able to drive during flare ups, should they occur again.

I drove a manual with a necrotic collapsed hip, until two days before surgery, which was agony the whole time. You will have to drive one or depress the clutch multiple times to find out if it causes compression on the sciatic nerve and if you think you can cope.
