Back surgery recovery

After 6 months of being misdiagnosed and therapy which made it worse,I finally had an MRI and it showed a bulging disc 3-4.Had surgery April 17. After 6 wks.I returned to work and felt good. I am a nurse and do lifting and such and went back with no restrictions.After the 3rd day my back started up.I re-started PT.They found my left leg(which is side that was affected)is very weak compared to rt.They feel it may be from going so many months with my nerve hitting.This time the pain is different and I am concerned I may have hurt the L4-5.I have extreme lower back pain.I work 12hr shifts.By the end of the shift I am holding my back and dragging my leg.Could this possibly still be from recuperating from surgery or should I be concerned.I had a lapro-discectomy..
