    A day in my life with CIs

    Just this morning I was sitting in my manager's office - we were talking about a project we're working on that involves some of the people who sit in cubes outside his office. Bob started speaking very quietly so that the others couldn't overhear and I was able to hear him well AND lower my own voice appropriately. Amazing.

    Bonebridge post-surgery advice

    Hi all, sorry for the late reply! Yes the swelling has gone down and it is working perfectly. The bonebridge really helps me in picking up sounds and I am very pleased with the results. Although since the operation I have developed continuous tinnitus on the left side (opposite to the implant site which is on the right) which has occurred for the last 3 months - which is quite annoying. The medical team have done investigations and there is no sound being directly emmitted by the implant, so they are unsure what has triggered the sounds that I am hearing. Perhaps it was triggered as a result of surgery but perhaps not - it could just be a coincidence that I have developed tinnitus post-op. Despite that I am enjoying the benefits that the bonebridge brings. Cam.

    New to hear peers & Choosing brands

    Thanks Mary Beth, yes I’m enjoying it very much & am doing great. At my last doctors /Audi appointment they told me after 6 weeks of activation I was sitting where most people are at 6 months so I feel very fortunate for it to be working so well. Still waiting for the Sonnet2 to get here for the swap. I really can hardly wait to see how well does!😁 I’ll keep you posted Rick H

    Great week. Josh and team are really warm and friendly and i felt really taken care of. Be prepared for some grueling testing which gets quite tiring ... but they are very mindful of not burning you out. I found the projects very interesting and relevant and they are happy to share as much technical detail of what they are doing as you can handle... So I definitely did not feel like a lab rat. Felt great to be able to contribute 😊 I'll definitely go back next year.

    @Melissa Sone people use EarGear mini covers just to cover the Sonnet mic area. Maybe they come with a tether option.

    @Jewel I have a Phonak pdf that does an excellent job of showing the various transmitters for adults. If you message me your email, I will forward it to you.

    Dinner at a restaurant

    I had dinner out at a restaurant with my partner last weekend. It was quite loud, but we sat down, ate, talked. After a little while, I suddenly remembered that I left my hearing aid at home and was able to converse with my partner over the course of a meal with using just the CI. Then I remembered that I also left the remote at home, and was still using my every day program. Wow, I could hear in a noisy restaurant. I don't think I've ever had that before.

    My employer met with me about my "medical condition." I realised that they would use my deafness to get rid of me. So I went to my audiologist who told me it was time for me to get a CI. I had been putting it off for years. I decided to go to the US and see if all I needed was the most powerful HA on the market or if I really did need a CI. Note they had told me I needed one about 6 years prior. But the meeting with my employer was the wakeup call for me.
