Get checked: You should go to see your spine surgeon. You likely will need to get an MRI of the lumbosacral spine again to evaluate perhaps there is another new damage/tear, bulging, narrowing, nerve impingement etc there- requiring another treatment etc. Good luck. Avoid any activity that causes that pain meanwhile until your doctor says okay.
