Is a second operation worth it?

Hello. I had a temporal lobectomy back in 2007. I think I get a complex partial seizure again once a month. I am thinking about a second operation. I would say they started again about 2009. So I had a 2 year period there of seizure freedom. Is a second operation worth it in your opinion?
