burning sensation

This is my 7th day of post surgery, I had a disc bulging on my L5 I had an endoscopic procedure minimal invasive to relieve my pinched nerve which was causing pain down my leg. The first day my toe felt numb but I was ok and had the normal pain from the procedure I thought it would be a great recovery, two days, after the surgery i no longer had numbness on my toe, instead I have a burning from my knee all the way to my toe, it's unbearable, I called the doctor and they prescribed a nerve pain medication which I have been taking for two days but it's not getting better. I feel miserable and the worst feeling is not knowing if this is normal, my doctor says I should have no pain but in my case he found scar tissue in my nerve so basically we need to see what happens and he doesn't tell me if this is normal, cam anyone please let me know if you have been in this situation? Does it get better? How long will it take?? Any any consulation to what I'm going through will be appreciated greatly :(
