Gluteal abscess, smaller abscesses with pus and pain

I had a gluteal abscess surgery 10 months ago. But since that time , I have been experiencing smaller abscesses with pusand pain over on of my incisions frequently at a regular interval of 7 to 30 days.I contacted with the doctor who did my surgery.He has said if this contiues to happen,more surgery will be needed. Hearing that I got confused and frightened and so did my relatives. They are telling me to change the doctor.I am very worried now.What should I do now? How serious are the abscesses ? Could the infection spread to my bone ?
