Unhappy Do I need second opinion for 2nd surgery?

I've been suffering w rt heel pain, like I've stepped on jagged rock & bruised the heel, for +2 yrs. I wrked on my feet for 11 hrs a day in factory. It got so bad, I couldn't put any wt on it. Dr said it's PF w spur. We tried Cort. injections. I had 4 over a 5 mo span. I opted for Topaz procedure to get me to work quicker. My surgery was March 9th. I'm back to hurting like I was b4 the surgery. He wanted to do more injections. I refused since they didn't work 1st time. Now he's recommending more invasive surgery. I asked him to remove spur at surgery, he said no that's not necessary. I'm thinking I may need 2nd opinion, but I don't know. Any advice?
