Hi, I don't want to worry you, but i think the best thing to do would be to go to the hospital earlier and get it checked out. I had my operation in February 2011 where it all went well, but then i went on a roller coaster ride 6 months later. About a month after that, i started suffering with pain and so i rang the hospital and got a checkup 2 months earlier then usual. It turned out that some of the screws had come lose in the lower part of my spine and i had to have surgery 2 weeks later to correct it. I'm not saying that falling over is as bad as a roller coaster ride, but you never know; the last thing you want is for an injury that you may or may not have getting worse. Hope that helped.

You may have just bruised it inside and the feeling may go away. Really you need to have a scan to see if anything has changed. Don't want to make you worry but you could have cracked it. No harm in seeing your doctor to see if they can feel anything. I would book in at the doctors. Take care.
