I fell from a stepladder and landed on a cement floor, on my lower back. I was in shock for a while, and sore, but otherwise seemed ok. But several days later, I hadn't had a Bowl Movement, so I saw a Dr. After some tests he assured me I'd be ok. He told me the fall had pulled the stomach muscles from their retaining points and the bowels were spinning their wheels. (so to speak). Sure enough on the 7th day after my fall, My bowels resumed their duties. Have you had a serious fall?

I have fallen, not from a stepladder but from a chair that I used as a ladder. It was an awful fall, I fell flat on my back and was laying on the floor for about 10 minutes. My roommates (this was in a dorm room) were all asleep and they, for some reason, did not get woken up. The floor was cold and when I finally got up my body ached so bad. I got an xray but everything was fine. I ached for several days after that. Just happy that I did not break my neck. And yours too!
