    Rehab games

    Thank you for the names of more rehab apps. I found some I did not like and was getting bored using the same one over and over. Sorry I have been away for awhile but the holidays are difficult for me and my spouse as it was only last year in January her father died. But it is good to be back among friends.

    Fine Tuner

    I have synced both sonnets. Found information on YouTube. I still don’t know how to do programs or change settings.

    Fine Tuner

    I received a huge box in the post today. Everything that was on back order arrived on my doorstep. Received my dry box, rechargeable batteries, and my fine tuner. I understand everything about my fine tuner except for the program buttons. I could not locate anything on the net that gave instructions for use. Also, am I suppose to carry my fine tuner with me at all times?
  4. Backorder was due to the hurricane, at least that is what my audiologist told us.
  5. My audiologist told me if I requested Mellie that they would not turn me down. You should try. Just email the company in which ever country you are from and ask.
  6. Some of the items were on back order. My remote, dry boxes and Mellie. Hope to get them soon. I already need to increase sound to level 2 and it has only been a week.
  7. Thank you for sharing the video. I will be receiving my dry box this week sometime.
  8. That is the time frame my audiologist gave me. I am hoping it will be sooner but it would also be a great holiday gift.
  9. Is there something specific that I need to clean my CI's with? I have noticed at the end of the day they are a bit dirty from sweat. I wont be getting my Rondo 2's until November as they have yet to be released in the states.
  10. Hey Emily! I too am from Louisville KY. I had surgery August 23 for bilateral CI. I am doing great, flourishing in rehab. Who is your surgeon? Mine is Dr. Jerry Lin from UofL. Lets stay connected. I would enjoy meeting other CI users in Louisville
  11. The bottom edge of cap rests on the top of processor. Difficult getting the transmitter to stay connected under cap.
  12. I am a new recipient of bilateral cochlear implants. I wear baseball caps and other hats very frequently. Tried to wear a baseball cap yesterday and I could not due to my implants. Is wearing caps/hats out of my life now or is there a trick to this? I would hate to giving up wearing caps/hats but it is totally worth it just to be able to hear again.
  13. I can hear in both ears! My activation was great and I feel on top of the world. I was given a hearing test at the conclusion of of my activation. My audiologist said it was a baseline test. When I finished I was given my results and I am already where she wants me to be 30/40. At this time I am on level 1. Iam hearing bells and a harp in the background, feels like I am in heaven - just kidding. I can hear my spouse, talk on the phone, even hear my cats purr for the first time. Everyone I speak to and even the tv, sounds like a computerized voice and very monotone. But, I am happy to be able to hear. Rehab is my next step. I have tried doing med-el soundscapes but it wont load. What do others use for rehab?
  14. Thank you. I now understand I am not going crazy. ?
