Blunt trauma to right side of body


Q: I fell off my mountain bike at speed whilst jumping and landed on my side. I had body armour on but winded myself and felt as though I had bruised my right ribs and also the right kidney area although there was no external bruising.
I am now finding that I am not passing any stools and this has been for approximately 4 days and I usually go to the toilet 2-3 times a day. What could be the problem please?

Symptoms:  Tend to touch on right side and constipation.
