Post back fusion

I had an eleven level fusion three weeks ago.

Yesterday, I dropped pills on floor. I live alone and I have a cat.

I didn't think I would be able to pick up with my grabber.

So I bent over and picked them up. I know...DUMB!

I am not in pain but I feel my hardware now where I didn't before.

I wonder if I caused it to move :-(

    No pain sounds good to me, but if something feels different I would call the surgeons office and talk to them if it were me.
