Why new nerve pain 3 yrs after fusion???????

Hi yall. I had a rather miraculous recovery from my PLIF 3 yrs ago. I've been running and lifting and hiking and whatnot like there's no tomorrow, all with no trouble. Until this past month. I've felt that familiar current zap through my rear and partially down my leg. WTH? I am totally fused. What could be causing this? I haven't had any further injury. I was warned that retrolysthesis (sp) was a concern if I was going to continue to be really active, but it's only been 3 yrs.

I realize that I was really lucky that the surgery completely took away the nerve pain before. But why after all this time would it be coming back if nothing is wrong?
