Sciatica After Micr0discectomy

After suffering from severe sciatica for over a year, I had my Micro discectomy done almost one week ago on L4/L5 and am still having some nerve pain in the affected leg. I felt good the first day with no nerve pain and then the nerve pain seemed to come back, but not as severe as before I had the surgery. I was hoping that all the sciatica would disappear after surgery. So, at this point, the results are a bit disappointing. Is it possible I reherniated the disk, the day after surgery or am I just having persistent nerve irritation that may or may not resolve?
