    @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 “good 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 “Thank 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 saying to the people in the dentist office, “can I turn this down? I’m having a hard time hearing and understanding  you with this in the background.” So far people have been agreeable and understanding  especially with all these masks and then double masks + a face shield at the dentist. If you can make hearing in noise easier for yourself definitely do it and try not to feel shy 😁
    Keep us posted!!!!!

    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 💪😎
    Where are you getting implanted?

    Thank you @Mary Bethand @Megan L..
    The more I think about it, the more excited I get. 
    And this website is an absolute life-saver! I can't believe all of the information I'm getting, that I probably wouldn't from my doctor! 
    I love how everybody can be so free about sharing their experiences. And @Megan L., I am almost always shy about my hearing loss. I've been told by so many people, 'Get comfortable with your limitations', but it's a lot easier said than done. And I've been working on it for 20 years, lol.

    Hope to be able to make next month; I was in the middle of installing new thermostat/unpacking so thought it prudent to continue that at the time.

    Hi @Megan L.,
    I am glad you mentioned that you're bimodal, because I am actually considering that. 
    Pending the results of an MRI and CT scan, we can figure out whether or not my left ear is implantable. In the case that if is, i will probably get bilateral; in the case that it is not, then I'm guessing bimodal route.
    How does it help you with background noise and such? 
    Since my bicross HAs don't help me at all in this area, I'm interested to know how it might work with a CI

    HI from the UK
    I have bilateral hearing loss but am implanted on one side with a middle ear soundbridge implant which gave me back my
    life ten years ago.
    I am seventy one and live in the "Yorkshire Dales" area northern UK.
    Happy to hear from or help anyone!

    Megan L. reacted to Valentin in My Body Composition Scale 2   
    @Megan L.I had the amazfit bip watch, As I commented on previous post, I didn't think about it and the CI issues. I suppose, the way to detect the parameters work in similar way on scales and as MODERATOR commented, the scale work far from CI is located,
    For curiosity, I share with the community that I use this watch because it has a vibration alarm clock. It was a discovery to wake up in the morning 🙂 I think the Fitbit has one too.

    So it's interesting... I was looking at the old temperature records for the DC region a few weeks back and I noticed that they previous longest high temperature streaks (tied, same duration) were in 1980, the year I was born, and 1988, year my wife was born. We had a new record here in 2020 and we're going to have our son later this year and well... Sorry folks, it's our fault
