Dear teacher,

That luck apparently resulted from the fact that some of his nerves had not been destroyed, scientists suggested. Because they were not dead, they could be revived. Massive amounts of physical activity induced new connections to form and a dormant pathway to revive.
And with that recovery came a string of accomplishments since his accident that included writing two books and directing and acting in movies. His extensive lobbying for public health issues helped earn him an award for public service in 2003 from the Lasker Foundation , which gives awards for medical research.

Q : I think a subject and object of the bold sentence are changed. A original sentence is

"A string of accomplishments that included writing two books and directing and acting in movies came with that recovery since his accident."

Am I right?

That's right. The prepositional phrase 'with that recovery' is preposed, or 'fronted', for emphasis.
