5 level fusion t9-l2 on 5-20-11 due to an unstable compression fracture. They used screws and rods for the fusion, and a wire to tie the fractured vertebrae together. I was just having an insanely difficult bm and was in a lot of pain in the abdominal area from needing to get it out. I strained *hard* (I know I shouldn't have) and felt a "pop" in my back. I didn't feel any pain when I felt the pop but as you can imagine, I'm terrified that I did something to the fusion site. Perhaps I busted the wire? I really have no idea. Unfortunately it is Saturday night so I can't talk to anybody at my surgeons office until Monday.
Has anybody experienced this? Any advice? I'm really scared that I messed something up. Any help / advice / support is appreciated
