Stim router wire removal

Had stimrouter installed Oct 2019.  No success or improvement in pain after many resets.  Would like wire removed but Dr. states to much scar tissue built up for successful removal without damaging femoral nerve in groin that in all likelihood would damage right leg.  Thoughts very much appreciated.

    Welcome peter L to the forum.

    When I had my SCS removed, my doctor also removed all of the wires and leads. If I were you, I would get another opinion.
