Fusions do go bad, and can be problematic.
Fusions can fail short term, or long term, for a variety of reasons. We don't really have detail on how well your fusion took. For example, even if the area is not well fused, but the hardware is in place, the doctor will often watch it. We don't know if you had follow up imaging and what it showed. Any sudden back pain in a patient with your history, regardless of the cause, warrants an exam due to medical standard of care.
In addition, additional disc problems often occur around fusions.
Sudden exercise and training , without the doctors ok, and without preconditioning, can cause problems.
