Femoral nerve damage

I have a damaged femoral nerve.  Mild to moderate.  This was occasioned from receiving a femoral nerve block in 2008 during ACL reconstruction.  I have now been fitted with an SCS implant for pain.  Symtoms (symptoms) I have are shooting, tingling crawling.  For the last few weeks I get a sharp feeling in my goin and at the same time in my foot just below my toes.  I am unable to straighten my leg/knee fully when weight bearing.  I find stairs difficult as well.  Sometimes I have good days where pain under control and other bad days.  Sometimes I feel as though I loose control of my leg.  Also I don't have the control I should have over that leg.  For example say I was doing physio and they said move your leg in a certain way I cannot do that without practicising the movement or getting my right leg to do it first and try and copy it.  Is there anything I can do to improve my situation? I have been told the nerve will not repair as it has been so long.  My EMG study showed mild to moderate denervation?  Is denervation nerve signal?  Is that why I have difficulty in some movements.  On the bright side if I walk slowly I don't limp.  I am loosing confidence a bit as I was recently in a busy train station and I had to try and avoid people - this makes me a bit unsteady as my leg doesnt always do what I tell it!
