RCE PTK Surgery

Has anyone ever had PTK surgery twice for the same eye?

Quick history for my story: I had a trauma to my left eye 8 years ago, suffered with RCE for 2 years, then had the PTK surgery. I had a few minor erosions for a month or so post-op and then healed beautifully. No problems for 6 years and counting. I started getting RCE in my right eye spontaneously, suffered for about 4 years until I couldn't take it, had the PTK surgery in right eye from same doctor, and I am 2 months post-op and STILL having Major Erosions. Saw the Dr. a month ago and he thought I was done...but it keeps happening. Last night was worse one yet.....

Anyone have the surgery twice???
