Recovery from discectomy l5/s1 - 6 weeks post op

I am now 6 weeks post op on discectomy at L5/S1. My pain prior to surgery was in my left leg, with numbness and tingling down left calf and leg. Since surgery that pain has mainly dissipated. Starting last week I began getting the pain in my right hamstring, calf and foot. It's like it just jumped to the other leg. Has this happened to anyone else? I have been really careful to not start working out again or do things that could re-injure myself. Very worried here. Any thoughts?
