New symptoms lower back

I had a massive prolapse in 2006 and had an L5-S1 microdisectomy amd a spinal fusion a few months later. I have never recovered fully and had a lot of neurological damage also and foot drop and hyper sensitivity in my right thigh. I’m on a maximum course of pain relief including opioids and an SCS. Last few weeks I’m experiencing a lot of pain when standing up in my lower back. I have alsways had this and pain in my legs however this is different it’s mainly in the central region of the lower back and buttocks. If I slightly bend or sit down I go back to my usual pain levels. It does seem to be getting worse and the GP said just increase your pain relief but I’m worried it’s not my usual pain and completely different.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated
