So I broke 2 vertebrae after a fall on Monday. The pain went away for a few days but yesterday and today I started pushing myself and I've also been in much more pain, especially today since I did more (sat up for 2+ hours in one go with only two <5 minute breaks with only my back brace as support, stood up for 15 minutes with no support while I was showering among many other things).
Should I go back to more bed-rest or should I continue trying to push myself? I'm determined to try and become independent again, but I'm worried that the efforts I'm making is causing more harm than good.
Also, when I'm lying down, if I lie down for around half an hour the lower half of me starts to hurt (around my bottom) and the only way I've been able to resolve this is by laying completely flat or walking around. Are there any other ways to stop it? It's stopping me from being able to rest as it causes me pain too.
