Having pain behind my eye and standing dizziness. Dura was ruptured 4wks ago during lumbar disectomy. Could working have caused re-rupture?

In brief: Possible

Sounds like you possess a spinal fluid leak (like a post-LP postural headache), and have dropping intracranial pressure when standing, which produces your symptoms.
Suggest evaluation for a blood patch, which hopefully, will end the problem
