Spasms 1 month after L4-5 and L5-S1 foraminotomy

I'm 5 weeks post op for L4-5 and L5-S1 foraminotomy surgery. Everything was going great for almost a month when last week I started getting spasm in nerve area of left hip that radiates to calf. I've been doing a lot of walking building up my distance. Nothing hard. I can't sit but feel great walking. Getting up in the morning takes a minute or two to get the spasm out that starts right after getting up. I pretty much lay down or walk because of the spasms. Muscle relaxers do nothing. Is this normal. I was told after surgery that it would be 6 months to a year to heal. I would really like to just sit again without a spasm.
