Crooked torso still after discectomy

Hello, new member here. 

Some brief background information I had a severe herniation at L4/5. Had severe pain down the right leg and became very crooked ('antalgic' gait due to compensating for pain). I had a discectomy 9 weeks ago. I am STILL crooked - my upper body shears to the left of my lower body. I was walking fine up until about 5 weeks but it is starting to get more and more painful and I feel like I am getting more crooked. 

I am wondering if if anyone has experienced this crooked posture, if it resolved after surgery, how long it took and what helped. 

I have seen many physios and they all seems stumped. Also I am 32 and prior to this injury strong and fit. 

Thanks,
momoftwins
