hello t8 burst

Hello everyone. I'm a physically active 46 year old male. 11 weeks ago I had a cycling accident that caused a 3 column burst fracture of my T8 with approx 12 degrees of kyphosis. I have not had surgery but have been in a torso brace since day 3 after my accident.I have been working FT since 10 days after my injury. Pain levels after accident where fairly high. But over the past 3 or 4 weeks have diminished too moderate / nil. Usually hydrocodone 10-325 does the job. I do have occasional tingling in my right leg which I'm watching closely with my neurologist. I can't wait to get out of my brace in the next week or so and start PT but that's entirely up to the doc what ever he say's goes. Hope I can get through this with out any surgery but I'm realistic and know it's always going to be a possibility.
