I'm posting this for my husband (40, 277, in good physical condition previously, with physically demanding job), who has been having medical issues for a year now. It began with waking up
in the morning with pressure in his lower back that was remedied by going to the bathroom. bending
, twisting, picking up
things, etc. never bothered him, which seemed to indicate it's not a back problem. then
it moved on to constipation, & when
he could go his stool was flattened.
