Medtronics Interstim device removal

Has anyone reading this ever had the Medtronic interstim device removed? While it has helped many others, it has not helped me and actually prevents the tests that could help me get a diagnosis. I am going to ask my doctor to remove it since it has failed to help me with nerve problems and I can't get an MRI or apparently any other kind of tests that may help with solving the nerve pain. Are there complications? Will my insurance pay for it?

I had mine removed years ago, since it didn't help my problem. There are no adverse affects, and my insurance did pay for it.
