  17. Yay! Congratulations @lizjlong! Which CI center do you use? I go to NYEE in NYC. Rondo 2 may stay in place better after your internal swelling subsides a bit. In the meantime, you can use Med-El GripWear to help it stay in place better. As far as knocking it off against pillows or headrests.....you will get better about positioning your head in time. Is your Rondo 2 located near your ear or closer to the back of your head? Each CI audiologist has different rules we must follow after activation. My CI audiologist said the CI had to be on all waking hours and I could use my other HA as needed as long as I spent several hours every day with the CI alone. So I wore my CI and HA at work and spent the remaining time CI only in the early days. I increased my CI only time each week. I will tag you in some threads about aural rehab. I worked on aural rehab a lot every day and it helped me tremendously. Wishing you the best!
  18. Hearing and replying to context with store clerks- kind of took me by surprise as a noisy environment. Also hearing better on phone calls

  23. Hello! Not sure if anybody can be of assistance but I have bilateral sensioneural hearing loss. I had my surgery (right ear, worse ear) on April 12. Today my implant was activated. I was told by my audiologist to NOT wear my left hearing aid for as much as possible so that my brain get start getting "used" to hearing with the implant. That being said, i'm hearing very little. The implanted ear (i'm wearing the Rondo 2) has been programmed with 4 maps. I was told to "change" the maps every 48 hrs and see which is most comfortable. Right now, I'm underwhelmed but I kind of expected that. I desperately want to hear everything "in stereo" again. Right now it is very low volume, tinny, and dull. I am "anxious" to start any rehab activities that will help me. Also, has anybody felt that the Rondo 2 will fly off very easily? I know that there is a clip and my magnet is a 3 right now because my incision scar is relatively new. I tried to sit on the couch and put my head back to rest and I feel like it's going to fall off Also, when pressed against a pillow , it squeals a bit... Back to work tomorrow, and I will be trying not to put the left hearing aid in, which is going to be a challenge. But i'm determined to make this work!! If anybody (new or old activations) has any pointers/advice for rehab, getting comfortable with wearing the processor and the challenge of having one hearing aid and one implant. I would be very grateful. Thank you! Liz Long
  24. Time for some fun. Share your favorite sounds this week.
