Fall after cervical and lumbar fusion

Going on two weeks ago, I fell (sat down hard) on the ice which was underlaid by rocks.  I had a cervcal fusion 2005 and a lumbar fusion 2006. I am currently under the care of pain management for continued problems with my neck. I recently was advised that I will probably need more surgery on my neck and my lumbar spine.  So, I fell and didn't think too much of it but it hurt like heck.  Now two weeks later, it still hurts just the same.  I hate to run for an xray or MRI since I have had so many of them and I already know I probably will need more surgery...does anyone have any advice for a coccyx injury.  Sitting is horrendus, standing is the same and only lying down or walking for short periods of time seem to give relief. I work full time but this has really slowed me down.  Any suggestions?
