Pain after surgery

I am 2 weeks post op from L5S1 fusion...prior to surgery, I had horrible left leg pain. Since surgery, that is gone completely, now I have right leg pain, entire leg, front and back.....feels like a tourniquet is around top of my leg and leg just full of pressure (best way I can describe it). It's worse when pain meds and muscle relaxer isn't as active in my system (doses wearing off). In the morning, pain always at it's worse....with me getting meds in and waiting for relief before I can do anything. 2 more wks until first post op appointment. Not sure if I should call office tomorrow or if this is normal???? Help :)
