Spine implant stimulator

I thought I would need this a year ago; but somehow I was able to get a couple of facet epidural injections that gave me hope. Alas, now the injections just don't last. I just had one in mid-Feb and the nurse practitioner (who is very nice) told me that she is not sure if the Dr. would give me another one. I'm scared. I have nerve pain in the right leg and it sometimes feels like a terrible burning just above my right knee cap. I'm due to see him on Thurs. a.m. I know he wants to do this procedure and I guess now I have no choice. Can anyone share their experiences?
