Suffering from a terrible pain in lower back that lasts a second or two, please advise?

I have been suffering from a pinpoint pain in my lower back, at exactly the same location at least 3 to 4 times per day. the pain stays for a second or two and then goes away. But it happens often, several times a day. I had a lumpectomy and lymph node operation 2 months ago. Can it be related to my operation. My doc thinks no.

In my opinion this may be caused by muscular incision. Nerve damage is possible but If the surrounding nerves were damaged to a large extent during the surgery, the result would be radicular pain in back. You can start with physiotherapy and hot compresses.
If problem persists you should consult and get an MRI.
