  1. I wondered if any one that has had a cochlear implant has had their body reject it? I was part of a clinical trial for patients having surgery to remove an acoustic neuroma to have a med-el cochlear implant to see if it recovered any hearing loss. Long story short, the implant did not work for me. I have had the implant for a year and a half and recently have experienced a lot of tenderness where the device is as well as the incision site, as well as pain and a pulling sensation. Just wondering if it is possible that my body is rejecting the implant. Anyone else experience this?
