ADHEAR is MED-EL’s revolutionary new bone conduction system. What’s different about it? There is no implant involved and instead, it simply sticks onto your skin behind the ear. ADHEAR—Stick. Click. Hear.
@BethlympianThe first month after the surgery my tinnitus was even worse than when I lost all hearing (inner ear viral infection) but I tried my best to keep calm and realizing that the surgery most assuredly "rattled the cage"--at the time of the activation and when sound was traveling once again into my right ear I found that the tinnitus disappeared. When I take the processor off it is of course still there but has quieted back down to pre surgery levels. I also had pain longer than expected but it did go away completely. I hope the best for you at activation and look forward to your updates.
