I am a 27yo male who had a very bad L4-L5 herniated disc, I just underwent an L4-L5 micro discectomy 6 days ago. I've been icing my back and trying to take walks every hour but I have developed a very bad pain/ possible muscle spasm in my right buttock. The pain is excruciating and at times feels like my right leg will give out. The pain itself alleviates once I sit or lay down or let it pass but I want to know if this is normal and if this is something that I am praying to God will go away. I had similar pain prior to surgery but nothing to this extent, most of the pain was centered on my lower back which that pain has completely alleviated. I just would like some input if anyone has been in the same situation as myself.
