  5. Hi Everyone, I joined this group as I’m in the referral process of getting a CI. My hearing was perfect up until I developed mononucleosis in June 2015.

I’m complete deaf in the left ear since May 2018 and now have severe-profound hearing in my right ear until 1000Hz and then it goes to nothing. I have a Phonak Naida UP, but it just allows me to hear sounds now, not speech. I am an ER nurse on
