In brief: Lumbar laminotomy

Typically you will experience incision pain for few days follow by muscle spasm.
Radicular pain, numbness or tingling in the lower extremity should be improved or resolved immediately or following weeks.

In brief: Local pain

You'll have painful discomfort at the sight of the surgery.
The pain in your leg should be better right away. The discomfort in your back should not be too bad.
