  1. Ahhhh! I asked for this like 2 or 3 years ago when we did that video for the Med El employees to watch 😊 I specifically asked if they could do something like Bluetooth since it wouldn’t drain the battery too much. Omg I’m so excited we are getting this and that they listen to our requests!!!!
  2. @tmscarlett10 Its an exciting time! You should be excited 😊 Yes this website has so many great and helpful topics that you may not get any where else. The people are awesome too! In my opinion, it’s therapeutic talking about your experiences good and bad. We all are here to support each other and see everyone do well 😁 At least for me it is. Everyone has limitations and I’m sorry they said that to you. It doesn’t sound very helpful or kind. Just keep doing you and own it πŸ’ͺ😎 Where are you getting implanted?
  3. Missed you all today! Have a great month and stay safe 😁 see you in October!!
  4. Yes!!! Definitely 😁 missed you guys today!
  5. @tmscarlett10 I only considered bimodal! Johns Hopkins - where I was implanted, did my worse ear incase something went wrong then I’d still have a β€œgood ear.” I qualify in my right ear but I happy for now with my HA helping my CI 😁 I’m not in the mindset to go through surgery again. Every time I get off Zoom or a Teams phone call, I say to myself β€œThank goodness for my CI! What would I do without it. How could I do without it?!” It’s amazing technology. As for noise - ditto on everything @Mary Beth said! Everyone struggles in noise even the hearing people. Today, I found myself
  6. @tmscarlett10 Welcome to the group!! I am bimodal 😎 It will be 4 years this November I got implanted in my left ear. Best decision but like you I was nervous and excited! Ask us any questions you may have 😁
  7. @Lori m After my surgery, I took one side of my glasses and sunglasses off. It bothered me so much! They were a bit crooked but it was pain free 😁 As for the itching and discomfort - have you talked to your surgeon? For me, my stitches were peeking through the incision and causing some discomfort and I found out about a year ago I’m allergic to bacitracin- the ointment the surgeon prescribed for my scar πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ After everything was completely healed, the discomfort went away 😁 I hope you are able to find some relief soon!
  8. @Valentin I wear a Fitbit everyday and never had any issues or interference. You can never be too careful when it comes to our CIs! I would probably too use the scale without my processor just to be on the safe side πŸ‘
  9. @Tracey_66 YAY!!! Even after 4 years I’m still amazed when I hear the rain and thunder!! Never gets old. Enjoy 😊
  10. Great seeing everyone!!! Thanks for posting all the links @Mary Beth 😁 Now I can get started on creating a skin for my Sonnet!
  11. @phobos512 Sounds like you’re off to a good start!!! Enjoy the journey and all the WOW moments 😁 It’s a wild one but extremely rewarding! See you on Sunday, looking forward to hearing your update πŸ‘
  12. @Valentin I read about a similar device to what you described above and it sent an electric pulse throughout the body in order to get a reading/calculation 😲 My audiologist said when I first got implanted that an electric pulse could wipe out/erase our MAP. I’m curious to know what Med El moderator says. Good questions!
  13. @phobos512 Haha that’s great! Sounds like you were a hair stylist in a past life πŸ˜† it would be near impossible for me to cut my own hair unless it was all one long length πŸ§œβ€β™€οΈ
  14. @Mary Featherston Glad it came out pretty good πŸ‘ practice makes perfect!
