Your oil pressure sensor can leak a fair amount of oil, and it is mounted beneath your alternator in the center of the engine. But I am concerned that you have leakage after an oil change. If you are sure the leak is not the drain then you may want to check and make sure the filter is not double gasketed or misthreaded. If you left the old gasket on there, it will blow out and you will lose all the oil quite quickly.
