    Kara of Canada got a reaction from Mary Featherston in How does it sound, to hear with a CI?   
    I agree. I have noticed small things that don’t sound right but that’s just me. It’s the new normal!

    Good luck today @Mary Featherston !! Remember it’s not a race it’s a journey. It takes time and perseverance and patience to get there. There will be obstacles and hurdles to jump but stay the course as the reward is great!

    Hi @Megan L. yes I was activated last week. It’s going good. I just don’t really enjoy the tedious training. But I found out how awesome TED talks are! So that’s making it better!

    Yes it does. But we don’t look at that now. Who knows how the tech only will change by then.

    So the new implant is in a different position from the other. Where as rh other is very close to my ear and rubs together occasionally.

    Definitely. The bandage was too tight. But left it on till the morning after. Felling pretty good. Still having minimal pain so using just generic brand “ Tylenol” otherwiseim goood. Still feeling tired here and there so naps are happening regularly!

    Another question for you @Mary Beth do you put both of your Sonnetd in one dryer? I have so far. I did with my HA and Sonnet as well. Making sure to keep magnets separate from processor part

    It’s going ok. Voices are still muffled but I can hear and understand for the most part. Background noises sound just about normal. The birds sound great! Also I’ve noticed the magnet sticks to the housing of the implant as well as the the actual coil spot. Weird. Must be the way the magnet spins that is can stick anywhere. (DL-COIL) my D coil doesn’t do this.

    Other than the staples I beleve it’s the implant itself then the electrode. The way it swirls then goes in.
