Post Op Fusion of L1 Question

I had a waterski accident that burst by L1 and had a l2-t11 posterior fusion. I'm 6 weeks post op and still have a lot of discomfort. According to my Dr. he says in a year I could do whatever again.

How realistic is that?

I feel like I'm feeling the entire bit of hardware, is that true or muscle sore or do you start to feel "normal" later where it doesn't feel SO wierd.

Lots of lower back pain below the fusion right about where I quess the L5 is? Common?

Would love to hear from any L1 fusion people as I believe it is in quite a different area than the common L5 I see on this board.
