Lower back pain two years after my surgery

Patient

Q: So two years ago I had a microdisectomy of my L4-5 L5-6... The surgery went well except for one major hiccup. Four week post opp I began to have the worse headaches I've ever experienced in my entire life. DIzzy, nauseous, spots in front of my eyes. Problems hearing. I would lay flat and with in minutes the headaches would completely stop. Once I sat or stood up. They would start all over again. After suffering for about a week. Small fluid pockets began to form at the surgery incision spot. My mother rushed me to the emergency room. To find out that my dura sac had been ruptured... Had an emergency surgery to repair the tear. After that for the next two years I felt amazing!!!! As of the last two weeks or so. I'm in way more pain now then before my surgery, my legs hurt so bad, my feet... when I sit down my lower lumbar spine around the injured disc crack and pop... that has never happened before. Is it possible that I've re herniated the repaired disc??? Please help me I really dont want to go through this all over again. I felt amazing! I don't know what happened?
