Failed back surgeries

Hi I am 56 years old. Back in 2007 I was diagnosed with A.S. I had lower back surgery an 11 hour operation to fuse my lower back.

In 2020 I had surgery above my fusion to open my spinal canal and also to remove arthritis off my spine. Last month I was told that it was closing back up again. My pain Dr. tried injections to give me some relief but it didn't work.

Now they say I am going to have surgery again in the same area as before.

Has anyone had this happen to them? If so what did you do about it? All suggestions are welcome.
