    mgfiest got a reaction from Mary Beth in How have your CIs changed you?   
    My hearing lost was compensated with 2 HA, but with one it was only a directional finder. Over the years it deteriorated to NR."
    When I went to get my CI, they said .. can't do government rules.. well I can't take no for an answer, so I was told look elsewhere, which I did and they said.. NO PROBLEM... hmmmm same government 2 answers. Took my trusty letter to my first CI center and said.. OH YES YOU CAN.... 
    Now my directional ear finder is now a working hearing ear and it is amazing to have someone on my "bad" side and be able to listen to what they are saying to me.
    This has truly made me respect sound at a totally different level.

    Got a new control unit and all is fix. Only made sense it was it, when 2 different kind of source of energy was acting up at the same time. 
    Let's see how long this last.

    I have replaced everything you have said. I have 3 different kind of disposable batteries, just to prove a point and they all do the same thing.
    They replaced the disposable battery holder, the rechargeable holder and a new charger. I got 1 week out of them and we are back at it again. I have emailed my audi about this.. again.
    I leaning toward the control unit has malfunction.

    I have gone thru 3 battery pack covers in the past 8 month. I get false "weak battery" chime.
    Is this the Achilles Heel with Medel Sonnet?
    Luckily it's still under warranty, but what happens after.. unneeded expenses.

    Well went for my 4th adjustment. Still having issues with the low tones. So they started from scratch. Major improvement. Also now have my12th electrode turned off, I was feeling the noise but not hearing the noise. So once again, I start learning to deal with certain sound that is new to me. Every day something new sound comes my way.. All good part of the learning process.. not even 6 months and they are amaze in my adaptability. Before I left they tested the CI and now have 78% hearing.

    went for my 3 months adjustments. The Audio deactive my first electrode 1. The continuous drumming noise is gone. I now get sometime a percolator sound now on some low pitch. I will keep records on what causes it and when I go back in Feb, we will see what can be done.
    now on a good note before the change happen, we had word recognition test. Prior to my CI operation my word recognition was at 11% now it's at 70%. She was very impress, not everyone does that well in 3 months.
    All is going good... I just keep working on the Angel Sound software every day.

    Awesome!  You are doing terrific!  Keep at it.  I am glad that drumming noise went away for you.  That must make things sound better.
