L4/L5 fusion and laminectomy

Hello. I'm new to this forum. I had a lumbar fusion L4/L5 with a laminectomy and instrumentation on July 25,2014. Just about 18 days ago. I had severe spondylolisthesis due to degenatrive disc disease. I did so well after surgery that they wanted to send me home the next day. I waited and stayed another night. I have been having increased sciatic pain since and am so worried as to if I made the right decision to have this surgery. I had tried everything prior. Had been having epidurals 4 times a year for 3 and a half years prior. They just quit working this year. I'm a otherwise healthy 63 year old who did Pilates weight trng and hiking. Is it normal to have this increased pain ( worse than before surgery )?
