In brief: Yes, but....

Having another surgery is an option, but you should try conservative treatment like physical therapy first if you are having pain.
Every time that you have surgery, you create more scar tissue. Before proceeding with surgery again, you should get a second opinion from another neurosurgeon or orthopedist.
