How long until my dog can walk after IVDD surgery?

My dog, Daisy, recently had surgery for IVDD. She still had deep pain feeling in her back legs at the time of surgery, and they said she had a 95% chance of walking again. It has been five days since surgery and she hasn't made any improvement at all. The vets say they are still "optimistic" but dont tell me any more details. I worry that I should see improvement by now. Does anyone have any experience and know when she should show improvement? Is it a bad sign that she hasn't gotten any better?
