Pain in buttocks and leg following L5 /S1 microdisectomy

Hi, I’ve found the Q&A’s very helpful on here.
I had an L5/S1 microdisectomy 9 days ago and still struggling with some pain in my buttocks and leg (although not to the same level as before). I’m not sure if I should rest or excercise.
In particular I get intense sciatic pain whilst sneezing and coughing.
Is this normal? I’m worried that the surgery has not been a total success.
