How do you know if you re-herniated a disc?

Hi everyone,

I am about one month past my operation and I was wondering if anyone has had a recurrence or re-herniated disc. Is it usually pretty obvious with a sudden recurrence of severe pain or can it slowly progress over time. I still have pain in the butt cheek area and a little bit down my leg when I extend my leg out and tuck my chin in. Could this be a recurring disc of just aggravating the sciatic nerve?
