Patient :I had a L1 and L2 compression fracture yesterday. I have not pooped in three days now. I struggle with going to the bathroom and I think it's due to my back, since this isn't something that happens regularly to me. Is there anything I can do to assist myself when going to the bathroom? Is this normal for someone with an injury similar to mine?
