L5 s1 week 6 post of pain in lower back

I'm week 6 post op of L5 S1 discectomy with bone spur removal. My sciatic issue is completely gone so far, but I'm experiencing lower back pain with pain in my buttocks. Incision area is still sore and I also developed a seroma which has gone down considerable. I stated PT about week 4 which is going good but I'm confused about the lower back pain, I'm still taking a light dose of pain meds about 2 a day and a muscle relaxer. Does anyone else have lower back pain? I have had a few melt downs and cried, not from pain but from frustration, I'm ready to be pain free.. I carefully do some light housework, cooking and laundry so I do not think I've injured anything..
