Leg Pain after back surgery

Please help!!! My dad just ended up having back surgery a week and a half ago. He had a disc replaced and a couple of disc fussed together as well as a rod and screw put in his back. He says his back is found great not giving him any pain. But he is up all hours of the night crying and screaming his entire left leg hurts so bad. And my dad is not a crier so you can only imagine how I am feeling about this entire procedure. He is not sleeping but maybe 2 hours a day and that is during the middle of the day. Does anybody have any ideas on maybe what he can take to sleep what will ease the pain. He is on lortab and gabpetin. Someone please help me! Thanks!
