  9. Hi everyone here in this forum This is an update of myself. (Me) Lori My surgery is in two weeks for single sided deafness in Boston. My team has most differently helped me through the way but still with difficulty with process (which is a process disorder.) I have moved my team here in the state of Maine but surgery still stands in Boston, along with continued physical therapy whom I adore. I have also been doing journaling which has helped me deeply. I have so many on my Rock! So what I am bringing in with me is? The warmth of the sun My friends My pooch All that surported me through this. To say the least it hasn't been easy. My excitement is now coming out. Thank you all for being here. Lori
  10. Hi Marybeth I haven't but it's worth a shot to see if they could fix vestibular hairs that have been completely damaged.
  11. Hi everyone I have a question about single sided deafness. I realize that many of you have permimnent damage of vestibular hairs. I lost my hearing do to this, this is why I have no hearing at all on my right side. I am ready for the Cochlear implant which I will no more real soon. They are working on the paperwork. I guess my question is if I went out of the country would any of you know if they could fix the damage? Instead of a Cochlear implant. Thank you Lori
  12. Hi Mary Beth Yes my team is saying that I am ready for the next level. I will diffiently keep you posted. Thanks
  13. Hi everyone It's been awhile since I wrote. I'm hanging in there with all. I had a question for single sided deafness which I am. I have been going through med. Psychiatry and therapy to be ready. Now they are saying that my insurance may deny. I have Maine care and Medicare any of you out there ever had this issue. My team is so behind me with all. Now I am basically just waiting. Ty
  14. Hi everyone It's been awhile and some struggles along the way. Many testing. But overall doing good. Had hearing tests completed to basically rule illnesses out for the unbalance and dizziness that I'm currently dealing with. The Psychiatry that is working with me say that I'm ready for the Cochlear implant. It's been a year and going into five months. I now have a new therapist that just got on board. I believe I'm just awaiting for a call from my implant manager. Thank you Lori
