abnormal bone growth after ankle surgery

I had an ankle surgery about 9 months back to remove bone spurs and loose bodies from my messed up ankle joint. I worked hard through the rehab, but 9 months later, still my ankle hurts. Last week an xray revealed I had abnormal bone growth post-surgery at the same place where the bone spurs existed before. My surgeon is saying that I might have to do another surgery to eliminate the spurious bone growth. Does anyone have similar experience? I am in a dilemma now - the surgeon also says there is no guarantee that the bone won't regrow at the same place even if I do the surgery.

Thx in advance.
