You are extremely lucky i also fell but it was 2 stories and had a burst fracture at L1. Rods, screws and a cage hld me together from T12 to L2. I do not feel that stuff in and I have been hurt fro 2.5 yrs now. I also hit the ground and realized i was fucked. I did gain anything back in left leg and can only curl 30 pounds with right leg and I have no calf,ankle or foot movement. No bb either. so continue to move forward and it will come.
