6 weeks out from L5-S1 fusion and nerve decompression...twisted it and pain has returned

I'm having an x-ray tomorrow. Very discouraging as I've been pain free since surgery. I twisted my back Monday now I'm back on pain meds and using a walker. It doesn't feel like it's nerve pain or muscular.

    Hopefully this is just a minor setback and nothing serious is going on, I have had several spinal surgeries and have had setbacks and scares with most of them
