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.
I took it easy when blowing my nose after that and it happened several more times. It took about 6 months for it to disappear and now it doesn’t happen at all. It just takes time for the swelling to do completely away and for everything to sclerose down so that contact can’t be broken.
I am sorry this happened to you @Dan W.
You can find reports online about this potential issue related to nose blowing and CIs. I hope it does not happen to you again.
Ok, well don't blow your nose hard... even if there is no discomfort.
Audi had me to gently rub the area where the magnet is... after a few minutes the ci is working again. Well see if there is any long term issues from it.
