Having tail bone injury after recovering from bladder banding surgery. Concerned about pressure and cramping in surgery area

I have just been given the go ahead to slowly resume normal actives after having bladder banding surgery 6 weeks ago. I have been feeling very good, but have now had a fall down 3 concrete stairs on my backside. Along with the normal tailbone injury pain I am also feeling a lot of pressure and cramping in the area of my surgery. Should I be concerned or just go to the ER?
