Normal after surgery?

I had surgery tuesday, so about 5 days post op for a L5S1 laminectomy.

Today and yesterday I have had a faint feeling in my leg, I cant tell if it is just a tight hamstring/glute or if it is the sciatica. Immediately after surgery teh only pain I had was from the surgery. No sciatica at all no referred pain in the left or right of where the injury was. It was fine until yesterday laying down it felt like it and when I walked, but it isnt always there like my sciatica was I may just be being a bit paranoid but idk. Is this something that is normal?
