Unstable T7 Vertebrae Fracture Fusion

Unstable T7 Vertebrae Fracture Fusion

I'm a 36 years old Triathlete. I broke my spine in a road bike accident resulting in an unstable fracture of my T7 vertebrae and the need for surgery (fusion of T6 to T8 vertebrae). Doc's couldn't believe I wasn't paralysed.

I'm now 8 mths post surgery, and doing exercise on daily basis (struggling with running, swimming nearly a mile and doing about 3.5 hrs on the turbo a week with the odd road ride thrown in). I'm also undertaking weekly pilates & daily stretches. Back generally aches each day.

Struggling to gleam many similar experiences from the internet.

Anyone done anything similar that can share experience and timeline of recovery??
