  1. I took it easy when blowing my nose after that and it happened several more times. It took about 6 months for it to disappear and now it doesn’t happen at all. It just takes time for the swelling to do completely away and for everything to sclerose down so that contact can’t be broken.
  2. I posted this on Facebook page so if you've seen it before I apologize. i am trying to gather information from other that may have experienced the same issue. Here goes: I blew my nose when due to congestion and rhinitis. I was very congested. I immediately lost any sound provided by my implant. I determined that I had introduced air underneath the implant which caused it to lose contact with my skull. After the air dissipated with some digital massage, the sound returned. It was very disconcerting. I spoke with my surgeon and he said he was told that there are reports of this happening
  3. Not sure I have one of those? Haven’t even had time to go through everything I received on activation day. Is it an additional item?
  4. Doing well! Thanks for asking. I’ve already gone through the 4 programs they gave me initially and I feel like if I could get more volume that would be awesome. I held my phone up near the mic and played a song and I heard the lyrics and am appreciating the music as well! I feel very fortunate to have this response so soon after activation. How about you?
  5. i got activated today and I heard speech, albeit not normal I feel blessed to get that type of reaction upon initial activation! I can't wait to see what happens over the next few months. I haven't heard speech in my right ear for so long that even the altered speech is better than what I had!
  6. I am excited for my activation this Friday at 10:00 am. Can't wait to see what it's like when it gets turned on. I'll post an update!
