Sankara, good to know you're maintaining a positive attitude, and not being bogged down by what happened. Wishing you a speedy recovery, and hope to see you back in action soon.

Heard about your accident from JK, and even if he wasnt descriptive enough, it was enough to gauge the extent of injury. Get well soon.

Sankar, that was really scary. What a freak accident can do, we all know from the most unfortunate incident that took away one of us in DEC 2007. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Sankar, stay relaxed. Just let go of everything else. Dates, weeks, months, job, everything else should be put on the back burner. Getting back control of life is very tough. There are no deadlines from now on.

Concentrate on getting back on your feet. Everything else is secondary.

I suggest you stick to listening to music and if you believer in a higher power, prayers. Every other activity is no-no.

This may sound strange / rude, but I have seen a close friend, who was badly injured trying to get back to normal life ultra fast, and the mental tension actually delayed recovery. Staying relaxed, and not putting pressure on yourselves is the key to recovery.

My prayers.

I can attest to that. In 2005, i had to go to mumbai by air for a internship. Two days before that, I was rear ended by an Qualis on an Activa.

I had multiple metatarsal (toe) fractures (bless the useless floaters). Courtesy a busy schedule/ambition and my hyper active nature, I lived a normal life, albeit on crutches - hobbled around on the left leg for the whole internship - totally normal life despite my weight including once in a while travel by bus from Colaba to Santa Cruz/Andheri etc, and even in the disabled compartment of local trains.

Net result - In 3 months, the left knee had cartilage damaged (something like that, I can't recall the condition for the life of me) at the knee. Took me months before I could do stuff like play badminton well enough again.

Sankar - Thats one spine chilling incident.

Like BackSeatDriver said, take lots of rest and follow Doctors instructions very very strictly. When its Spine related, you can never be too careful.

God Bless and have a safe and full recovery.
