In brief: Speak with Surgeon

Recommend speaking with surgeon to discuss your pain issues.
While pain may be normal after surgery, sometimes when pain increases above normal status, then evaluation may be needed to make sure no complications has arisen. Otherwise seeing pain/spine specialist may provide more answers.

In brief: Need Evaluation

You must get this checked sooner rather than later, especially if your bladder is involved.
You could have another disc from a different level or scarring from the previous surgery.
