  1. Thank you @Cara Mia and @Mary Beth for your wonderful responses. My CI Implantation is done and I am in a recovery week, seems pretty good as of now except some bizarre taste issues and clicking sound and ringing in ear. Sometimes this ringing in ear is causing to not to function (not to grasp words properly) in other ear as well might get better coming days. My Activation is scheduled for next week my audiologist might evaluate the residual earing and might determine the EAS is suited one or not, If the residual hearing is preserved I will choose the EAS one as based on the above suggestions its giving more natural way of hearing. Also read in the forum the US Recipients will be given a Roundo2 voucher, If so am I eligible to get the Roundo2 voucher, Getting Roundo2 voucher will help me a lot and I can choose to programme Roundo2 to for all frequencies and use Roundo2 whenever needed and based on need.
  2. Thanks a lot Mary for providing a detailed explanation.
  3. Thanks Mary, Yes I will discuss with my doctor and audiologist again for confirmation and selecting the external device. My audiologist mentioned that external device can be selected after surgery and at the time of activation.
  4. Hi My Name is Nagaraju, residing in California. I have been scheduled for an implant surgery on next week at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto, CA. I have chosen MEDEL as implant and doctor suggested the MEDEL Sonnet Implant. The reason I have chosen MEDEL brand is mainly because of with this implant I can still undergo MRI if I needed any time in future. I am planning to take one back-in ear device and one rondo (backup). but Audiologist suggested that rondo cannot be usable if any of the residual hearing is left in ear after implant surgery. and it will be a problem if back-in ear breaks for any reason. (As getting new one will be high costly and insurance can only replace for 5 years) I didn't get much information on rondo or rondo2 devices.. But if In case I wanted to purchase the device my own how much it will costs. Also can you please advice how these external devices are usable with telephonic calls. (as I am in IT sector and will be having most of the telephonic meetings) Just trying to understand whether back-in ear ones/ rondo's are most suitable. Can you please provide your advice. Thanks Nagaraju
