Hello, Anon! Thank you for writing to us.
I'm sorry you are going through this. You mention your sciatic nerve. Sciatic nerve pain is usually caused when a herniated disk or bone spur in the spine presses on the nerve. Pain originates in the spine and radiates down the back of the leg, and usually affects only one side of the body. I can't speak to the procedures you had, but I would address this issue (first) with the doctor who performed your surgery. In the meantime, anti-inflammatories such as Motrin, Advil, or Aleve sold in drug stores can help (if you can take them). A prescription pain reliever might be prescribed if over-the-counter medications are not helping.
