    Kay got a reaction from Kara of Canada in Dizzy   
    You're right about recovery. My head is still pretty sore where I'm supposing the processor will set. I'm just anxious and of course want everything yesterday! ?
    What was it Ivana says about patience? ?I'll let you know how it goes.  Thanks

    Kay got a reaction from Kimmay in Dizzy   
    I got my 2nd implant on Monday. My right implant went so good, I thought why not.  well this one is no picnic. I am wondering if someone can give me some guidelines? I have quite a bit of pain in my jaw, and I get headaches and brief stabs of ear ache type pain. I  am also very dizzy, using a cane. I think the dizziness is causing a bit of nausea. My dressing was on very tight and the headaches are less since it came off yesterday, now it's just by my temple . Can anyone give me a point to shoot for as to when this will get better? I'm pretty sure I got spoiled by the first one. That was a piece of cake ?I hope I didn't make a big mistake. Thanks for being here.

    Thanks Ivana. Since I have arranged for a sub to fill in I can do whatever I need to do, go, don't go, help or just sit. The meeting is at my sisters house so it's almost like home.

    Thanks Mary Beth. I just didn't realize it was that soon after surgery. I'll have to see what I can do.

    Wonderful Kara! I'm happy for your gift even though you have to wait a bit for it .?  I 'll be waiting to hear your journey story. I went to a harp duo concert Sunday night and it was the first time I was able to really relax and enjoy something like that and not struggle to hear. What a pleasant evening!  Had an appointment with my audI today and am doing very well. He tweeked it a little and I think, when I get used to it, it's going to be good. Next appointment in 6 months. I guess I'm a bit hyped right now. Again, so happy for you.

    Great Cara! How exciting for you. I have been wondering when you would get the good news.
    My CI process is going well. My audi was impressed by my progress. I get frustrated sometimes because I want it all now! I have to keep reminding myself where I came from just a little over 3 months ago. Need patience.

    My batteries are power one.  I turn on around 8am and it is not off more than half an hour until anywhere from 10pm to 1am. They last 2 days. I do notice my reception gets a little muddled when I am at the end of the battery life. I sure hope we get the rechargeable batteries before I use up all the ones I got when activated!

    I had a mammogram shortly after I got activated and the technician said she had never heard of the problem with x-rays. She called and asked about it but I don't think the one she called knew either. She said she didn't think it would hurt and "are you I sure?" I took it off. Maybe the x-ray profession needs to be made aware of this.☺

    Kay got a reaction from Mary Beth in Sequential cochlear implantation...   
    They did but they're getting quieter. my audi said they were caused by the nerve endings being stimulated after a long absence of stimulation so they don't know what to do. He said it will get better. Seems to be so. Just strange that they were silent outdoors.

    Kay got a reaction from Cara Mia in Washing hair after surgery   
    Hi Cara, when I called my Dr he wanted to see me to make sure everything was OK. Went Thursday and all is well. I still have pain in my jaw and he said that's what's causing it and it will go away. I see him again this Thursday. I'm not getting them as much as I was. Thanks I appreciate your input.

    Good for you Cara! Hope all goes as well as the first one did. I find the non hearing world a bit lonely. Anxious for activation.
