Default need extention- ongoing treatment following car accident

Hi there,
I would like to have some advice concerning the possibility to extend my WHV (417).
I had a car accident few months ago and I'm still in pain and following some medical treatments. My visa will expire next month but I'm not sure I'll be fit enough to stand a long 25hours-flight.
I was considering to apply for a Tourist visa to have some more time - I'm not able to work at present anyway!
I know that tourist visas are very rarely granted after WHVs unless there's valid reasons. Do you think mine is enough reasonable ?
Thank you all for your advice and support

If there are medical reasons for you needing to Australia for a bit longer, there is a fair chance you would be granted a tourist visa. If you can, go to your nearest DIBP office to discuss the matter and apply in good time.
