Pain after microdisectomy?

Hello everyone! I just turned 18 last month and had a 1.0cm disc herniation on my l5/s1 . I had a microdisectomy on Tuesday and I have a few questons fot people who have undergone the same surgery. I noticed that although the intense sciatic pain and numbness that I had on my right leg is gone, I still feel a sort of twinge every now and then down my leg. Is that normal? I have a pain on my right glute as well.I also have a lot of back pain that is constant. It gets worse when I am positioning myself in bed, and when I sit down. I'm not sure if the pain is due to the staples or the muscles inside my back. Has anyone else experienced this? And if so, how long until it went away? Thank you so much :)
