Coccyx area pain returned

Originally I had my tailbone partially removed in 1966 and had no problems for 35 years! The pain came back and I had more surgery done by a Dr. Dickerson in Charlotte, NC [now retired]. This time the rest of the tailbone and extra bone that had been pressing on a nerve was removed.

Worked fine for 8 years and now I have extra bone growing there and lots more pain. How many times can a person be carved on in that area?
