  1. I hope you had a nice activation. Who is your Audi by the way?
  2. I am!! it has been a busy year, researching to buy our first house which we just did.. and lot of work but good! I also hope you are doing well. I just realized that @Tutz67 surgeon was the same as mine, very god surgeon.
  3. Hey @Tutz67!! Dr Chawla was also my surgeon, very professional, I'm very happy with his work!
  4. Good memory @Mary Featherston!! yes I am in South Australia. @Tutz67 I hope it is not too late, if you need to ask questions just let me know. I live in Adelaide.
  5. Well as most of you have said above, each journey is unique, there is no way to compare one another. In my case, my Hearing Aid was useless a month after using my CI in my other ear. In regards to changing programming, well I use three programs: the everyday program, the noise program and the phone program. I generally use the everyday program all the time. In noisy situations I have to change it: English is not my first language which makes it harder still.
  6. Hi Rick, Welcome to Hearpeers. I'm not a Medel user, but I can tell you that Cochlear is the worst brand to choose if you want to listen to music.
  7. Yes, that is normal. After a couple of days and mappings it will be improving. Hang in there!
  8. That's nice, I do something of sorts over here in Adelaide. My audiology Clinic schedule meetings along the year (3-4) something like that were they gather their patients and soon to be patients to different topics. I like to attend to give my part of the story and help people make decisions. I'm always the youngest one, and it feels weird seeing all these oldies surrounding me
  9. Things are going well @Mary Beth I can't complain, I'm really happy with my CIs. Communication at work has improved heaps and I'm not scared anymore to interact with students and staff. I don't forget that this is a long process, my Audiologist can't believe how patient and positive am I.
  10. Well I'm 1 year with my first CI and 6 months with my second. I still don't know where the sounds come from.
  11. I think this has been under the radar for some time now? Cochlear has been working on this https://www.cochlear.com/intl/about/media-centre/cochlear-announces-next-phase-in-development No idea how it is going to work though.
  12. In my case I don't want to have anything to do with disposable batteries 😂 I used them for 35 years or so... not anymore, glad to use rechargeable batteries. I survived my trip to New Zealand last December using the rechargeable ones. Just pop them into the charger each night and of you go in the morning.
  13. Fantastic, I wish you the best, hope your surgery goes smooth and painless like mine. Please keep us posted. You can PM anytime if you have questions.
  14. Same as @Mary Featherston I wait for them to beep. Depends on where I am or what I'm doing, I swap them after a couple of beeps. Sometimes I forget, then when they go flat I curse myself for forgetting... It annoys me really when they go flat and I'm doing something or watching TV lol.
