  1. My audi also does MCL everytime I go for a mapping.
  2. That's ok, @Mary Beth knowing that I can have my other ear hearing almost at the same level of my first CI it makes me motivate more to move forward with the revision surgery. My cat? well I think he is taking it pretty well doesn't he? 😂 On a serious note, he gets scared when tradies come to our house with big machines like the Tree stump machine from the tree removal company that came about a month ago. Sometimes he gets friendly with the tradies depending on their personalities, sometimes he is scared of them mostly when their voices are very strong. But it is not frequent,
  3. Hi guys! Long time no see you! I have been quite busy, we have one staff less at work, we also bought an old house which needs lots of thing to make it up to date! I just wanted to share with you that my second implant hasn't been working as expected. Initial activation went well but 3 months after the last electrode had to be shutdown because it was giving me facial movement during testing. Then it happened to the electrode before the last one. On December my surgeon ordered a CT scan and we found that 2 these 2 electrodes were outside of the cochlea. To sum up, my CI has been movin
  4. I hope you had a nice activation. Who is your Audi by the way?
  5. 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.
  6. Hey @Tutz67!! Dr Chawla was also my surgeon, very professional, I'm very happy with his work!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Yes, that is normal. After a couple of days and mappings it will be improving. Hang in there!
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
