Spinal cord stimulator removal

I had a SCS implanted in 2008. It was helpful while it was in, but I haven't used it for approx. one year as it has outlived it purpose. I had the stimulator removed the other day and have been VERY uncomfortable since. Discomfort in my legs has kept me from sleeping. The pain/ discomfort I'm experiencing is located where my legs meet the torso. I can't get comfortable. Called the Dr. And didn't receive any comfort from him. Has anyone had a similar experience with the removal of their SCS? Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
