Hi, I am 7 days post op for BA. I bent over to grab some laundry and felt my left implant shift and felt pain. Did I screw something up?

After posting this question I did call my surgeon's office and spoke to the surgeon's nurse/assistant. She told me that there was probably nothing that they would do about it at this time. However, she said that if I notice anything unusual or I was still concerned by tomorrow to call and they will get me in to see the doctor. As of right now there are no bruises or swelling and I am only feeling what is probably considered to be normal soreness from the surgery. Should I still get examined by my surgeon anyway?
