L5/S1 PLIF TailBone pain

Hey everyone! I'm 14 days (December 15,2014) post-op from a L5/S1 PLIF, and all of a sudden I have started getting these awful pains in my tailbone. They are so bad at times, mostly when I'm getting out of bed and standing from sitting, that I start shaking and feel like I can't support myself. A couple of times, I would have fallen if it weren't for a wall beside me to grab on to. It hurts when I laugh as well. I wouldn't be as concerned, beings that I am only 2 weeks post-op, but they just started happening. I felt better in the week after my operation than I do now. Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience, and if so, what they found out.
