Abdominal Discomfort

Abdominal Discomfort

thoracic compression fractures causing much discomfort under ribs / top of distended abdomen: constipation also
With lower ribs pressing on top of pelvic bone
Other than stretches / physio exercises anything I can do about it?
Feels that a well fitted back support would help ?
I am 81. Was very fit before fractures occurred

Ask doc/pharmacist for dose
