Quickly getting worse, numb and tight

6 months ago I had a lumbar laminectomy, leaving my foot numb after surgery. 6 months later in one weeks period, the numbness and tightness in my foot, toes, ankle and calf is much worse. Had an MRI and dr said he sees some form of compressing on disk and also scar tissue. Says up to me: have surgery and see if something needs removing or not. I can wake up feeling much better, the same, or a very small chance I'd feel worse.
Anyone out there with increasing numbness/ tightness after lumbar surgery? Any advice?

The surgery has been a nightmare for me and my family.
