symptoms from L2-L1 disc herniation

Hi all- I had a fusion in June of L2-L3 and L3-4. My L2-L1 disc is also badly herniated and since my surgery I've had more pain in that area, as well as sciatica from my L4-L5 being bad (surprisingly my L5-S1 is fine. I guess the curvature of my back is such that it doesn't put pressure on that level). My doctor warned me this could happen as the levels above and below take on more work. I'm just wondering what specific symptoms any of you may have had resulting from a L1-L2 herniation. Where do you hurt? Other areas of body affected? I'm trying to pinpoint some of my weird symptoms. On a happy note the symptoms I had that led me to do the L2-L4 fusion are gone and my fusion is going well even though I'm only almost 5 months out of surgery. Thanks fellow spineys!
Severe DDD in S1-T12. 5 disc herniations. 5 compression fractures. Had a 2 level lumbar fusion/decompression on June 12, 2013. L4-5 foraminotomy on Jan 8, 2014, Right SI fusion in Oct 2014. Scheduled for L4-5 fusion to existing fusion on Sept 28, 2015
