Implantable neurostimulator for chronic pain

I have had an implantable nerve stimulator for approximately 4 years and have had very good results from it. I have neuropathy mainly in the soles of my feet and have been pleased with it. Of course it doesn't completely take away the pain but it is lowered to a more reasonable level. I also have the pain in my legs and feet but it has been pretty well contained by Lyrica.

@nebma, can you please share which brand stimulator you have? I was told my Nevro would be a "home run" for my foot neuropathy, but it's a total bust. BUT, I was also told it wouldn't work on my back pain, and it's 100% effective. They tried to keep my back program while adding a different one for the foot but to no avail. If it's a Nevro it would be helpful to know which program works for you foot. thanks!
