pain worse after surgery

Had l5 discectomy 5/22, did great for three weeks, pain came back to a point that I could not stand for more than 15 minutes before butt and thigh would start painfully throbbing. Doc did new mri and disc had herniated again, not as bad as first time. Recommended surgery which I had 7/21. Have not been able to put fullweight on left leg since. I was told that I had csf leakage during sugeryand to lie flat for two days. Could get no relief so saw the doc tuesday, he suspected I had fluid buildoup from surgery pressing on nerves creating pain. Had another mri yesterday, doc call today and said yep, fluid pocket and wants to do to esi tomorrow to see if it won't get pain to subside while waiting for fluid to dissipate. Anyone have any experience with this. At my wits end, never dreamed that I would be worse after surgery than prior. This same disc herniated in 2008 and disectomy worked perfectly, instantly pain free for several years. Appreciate any insight. Thanks
