Back Problems board

Hey, this Monday I just had a lami discectomy done, it is on the L4/L5 level of the spine on the left side. It was herniated for almost a year and I had alot of pain going down my leg because of my nerves. After the surgery I immediately felt nothing down my leg and thought it was a success but after the morphine wore off I am feeling the same pain down my leg. The surgeon said he did the job but I was wondering what the problem was and how I can help myself to get rid of the pain. If anyone has the knowledge to help me, please post.
