Leg pain post op

I had a microdisceotomy to alleviate the pain i was having from a herniated disc L4 L5 that occurred about 7 months ago. Before the surgery i had a lot of pain, numbness and weakness in both legs but more in my right leg. After the surgery i felt great, besides the pain from just the surgery. I am now 10 days post op and have been starting to experience leg pain but it feels different from before the surgery. The pain starts in the back of my thigh and goes all the way down my leg; I'm thinking its a nerve. The pain only happens when I go to stand up, sit down or move in certain directions; it doesn't hurt when I'm just sitting or laying down. The pain feels like a stinging, sharp pain. I am wondering what could it be. Do i just have to give it time to heal or will i have this forever.
