arm pain after microdiscectomy

I had L5 microdiscectomy surgery 10 days ago. The sciatic leg pain is gone yet I'm left with a numb foot. I was told that will slowly go away as the nerves heal. My problem is arm pain (both) that feels nerve related. I thought I was having reoccurrence of thoracic outlet syndrome which I had in 2005, but now I'm thinking it's related to the surgery or a side effect of the etodolac I'm taking for inflammation. The pain is worse at night while sleeping so I thought it might be the side effect of mixing etodolac with Tylenol PM. I can't find anything on the web so I'm posting this message hoping someone can help.
