    I just want to say a big thanks to my CI Center and my audiologist. I have read on H P individuals going to their  CI Center and not having the tool for the magnet and cables I sent an email to my audiologist and she advised me we have everything not to worry

    As a frequent traveler I take both rechagable and disposable batteries as there is pro and cons as when and where you use them. I also pack and extra extra coil cover just in case you’res falls off hits the ground and cracks,also if you have them extra battery frame for disposable batteries ,rechargeable battery adapter for the rechargeable batteries,you never know

    Dave in Pittsburgh got a reaction from Jewel in Second cochlear implant   
    I can see how you would like audio rehab,it was a real chore for me,it brought back memories of school days and homework ?but I was a real trooper and did it not once but twice and it did pay off.
    Will you be be getting the Roger Pen?

    I received my second implant in March 2018 and I am so glad I did . Going bilateral is a big improvement and if you are eligible for getting the Roger Pen that’s even better.
    I no longer have to use close caption on the TV can see the whole picture. My hearing is probably as good as now as was when I was young.
    Audio rehab will play a big part ,
    Keep us posted and good luck

    Dave in Pittsburgh got a reaction from Hicksy in Roger   
    I received my Roger21 and Roger Pen  10 days ago all I have to say is WOW! It’s great to watch TV and not have closed caption on. I have been involved in 3 conferences with approx 5-15 people and it was great to hear people with very little problems.The conference that had 15 people att I did ask the person to wear the pen during his opening speech,I was little hesitant I guess fear,embarrassment but he had no problem at all with my request and we were strangers we have never meet.
    I am bilateral and I had my audiologist order a second Roger for my other ear even though I have to pay for it,as insurance classification is accessory .
