Since you have already undergone an appendicectomy what is the histopathology report of the specimen say?Was it really an inflammed appendix?
Also it seems to be too early to think about adhesions now.Hence i would suggest you to get examined and evaluated again by your physician for the persisting low back ache
All the best
