New pain issue after lumbar fusion surgery

Hello everyone
I had the posterior lumbar interbody fusion surgery L5/S1 February 7. I have been doing really good  2 weeks ago I was having my yearly exam and I was getting off the exam table and my foot slipped and I almost did the splits. Since then my back has been sore as if I pulled a muscle so I have just been taking it easy. For the last couple of days my pain seems to be getting worse. I am experiencing a dull achy on going pain in my lower back and today I am hurting what feels like on my spine whether I am standing or laying regardless if I take my pain meds or muscle relaxers. I am not sure what is going on. Has anyone else had these pains?

    ladylance, if you are still in pain you need to see your doctor asap.
    I can easily say my back hurts standing or laying but that doesn't mean we have the same issues. Everyone's pain is different and comes from a different source.

    I second the advice to call your surgeon. Hopefully its nothing but better to be safe than risk even more damage

    Start making notes over the week end of what seems to irritate it. Keep a journal of when you hurt and what you are doing.
    I have always done for every appointment so I don't forget anything. And the more clues he has the better to figure this out.
