  1. Lozenges. Something to suck on. Or an anti inflammatory might be helpful. Of course seek advice form the CI surgeon but this is back pocket info.

    Hello from Vancouver BC :)

    Yes that’s me. Since health care here is provincial you would have to go with that first for sure.

    Amazing video series from Med-El

    Wow! Welcome @Vera I really enjoyed the videos as well. I especially enjoyed the fact that your CI centre gave you so much info at the first session with activation. We don’t ge that here. So if it wasn’t for this forum I would have been lost as to where to start.

    Activation September 20

    Well @Jewel you are doing amazing and making great progress! I had the same issue with the landline in T. So I don’t use T for phones of any kind. I am also training in noise here days. Not as fun but worthwhile not the less. Have you tried on I and adaptive yet?

    Swimming with Processors

    Hi I use the rechargeables with the water wear. Then I put them in my Med El headband ans wear them like that. I use Sonnets. No leaking issues or issues with them falling off.
  9. As far as I know it’s a hospital to hospital basis. Since the hospital I go to is a research and teaching facility it is a very limited position. I was very up front about my need to have a second CI. I appealed to the hospital CI team. They approved me. Not sure how many people are in this study as they just did a renovation for testing labs for reasearch purposes. So it’s a new and upcoming thing I think. Hopefully it will change the opinion of one versus two CIs for the general public.

    Adhear questions and answers

    I noticed an article stating Adhear is available in Canada!
  11. So Canada, well Ontario to be specific. We adults get one implant covered by our health care system. Children get two. We are given one processor and a five year warranty on all parts except the rechargeable battery charger. After that we pay out of pocket for upgrades and parts etc. I’m not sure how that works for kids. Each province here has their own standards.

    That’s what she said. I told her you were a teacher of the deaf. And she described you. At a conference or something.
