7 weeks out with back pain still

Hi: I am 7 weeks post op from a 4 lvl lumbar fusion, trying to do all I was instructed, not taking all the pain meds prescribed and working my way up daily on my treadmill to build up some strength. Last night, I was trying to get up out of bed and must of moved or twisted wrong cause the sudden pain just about shot me through the roof . Today the pain woke me up and I have had to start taking pain meds again every 4 hours or I am miserable...... Is it possible I broke something or maybe just strained something?
