Post Surgery Concern

I had a l4/l5 and l3/l4 microdisectomy approx 2 weeks ago for severe
Back pain and back spasms. I had a l3/l4 laminectomy 20 years ago
At age 17. So, back problems have basically been a part of my life.
I had no pain post op. After one week my hamstrings felt extremely
Tight so lying on my back in bed I very lightly stretched them for 10
Reps and a 5 count. The next morning my back was way out of Waco
With severe hip displacent and recurring spasms and a decent
Amount of pain. I started back on muscle relaxers and hydrocodone
And after about 3 days I was close to my postop normal. My question is
This? Did I perhaps do any permanent damage? Also, when is
An ok time to begin light hamstring stretching? I read on this website
That doing this soon post op was good to limit scar tissue development.
