Wishing you all the very best Simon! I broke my back in 2011 and also have a rod and screws to cover where I used to have a T12. Some quick advice - you will recover, take your time and don’t rush. When you’re ready, do plenty of Pilates to get your core strength and balance back— Tom Wrathmell (@media__type) August 10, 2020
I broke mine in ‘15 in a car accident, T12 consist of foreign objects. I truly believe I’m a half inch shorter. my doctor says it’s my imagination BS. At any rate I thank God I’m alive as well as yourself, Simon and all of those who’ve suffered a traumatic injury. Good Luck Simon— duckmymuck (@duckmymuck) August 10, 2020

Very sorry to hear this @SimonCowell ... but at the same time, rather gratified to know that I'm not alone! On day one I flew over the handlebars of my ebike and smashed my face. Bike, dog and I went home in a black cab.— Jessica Jones (@itsjessyjones) August 10, 2020
I am so glad you are up to Tweeting already. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Simon. I had a heart attack during this pandemic so I agree with you 100% about the doctors and nurses...the nicest people in the world!— Glenna Cordill (@Glennah) August 10, 2020
