Mild leg pain 11 weeks post-op


I had a microdiscectomy on my l5-s1 disc September 29th. Overall recovery has been going well. The pain dissipated about 95% since surgery; however I have noticed over the last week or so I've started experience mild leg pain, primarily below the knees. Has anyone experienced this before? I've heard that pain can reoccur after its largely vanished. I was hoping to find out what experiences you had - should I be worried? Or is this normal?
