  1. Hi to here on hear peers Well I managed to get through the holidays. I was told by my implant manager to try and boost my processor up to level two to get used to someo of my surrounding. When I arrived at the function everything to me was so difficult to handle. So I was told to reduce my level back to one. I could hear some of each voice during this time but not to the best of clearily. They say this takes time and will be baby steps. I was so extremely exhausted from all but managed to get through. I am now back on level two with silence in the background. I don't know if any of you also had a balance issue but I do and learning as I go. I also had physical therapy whom asked if she could stay on board (absolutely.) She found that the Crystals were doing better where my processor is attached, but needless to say they are stuck on the other side. She calls this (BPPV) and I am most definitely working hard with all. It's now s low key time for me until I go back to Boston Medical Center and to be reavaluated along with my new equipment that has arrived. Hope all here on hear peers had a wonderful holiday season. I believe the year 2020 will be ours!! Thank you Lori
  2. Hi to here in hear peers I am so grateful for all who has connected here with so many. Yesterday I returned to Boston Medical Center for another three hour session and had my processor reprogrammed, for I just couldn't hear at all. It's better now and I am in stages 1,2,3,4. I could not thank enough for the surgeon and my implant supervisor for all they have done but just for myself but others as well. They say it's baby steps through our journey that indeed. Merry Christmas to all here in hear peers. Lori
  3. Hi I have been reading so much here at hearpeers. Absolutely wonderful!! I as well have been doing journaling on myself. It's so amazing what your unquie journey (story is all about.)
  4. Thank you Marybeth !! It's just so different Water running Sneezing Flushing the toilet I can go on and on. Lori
  5. I had tears some but when I can hear more clearly that's when I will probably break down. Just keeping the faith!
  6. Hi to all here at hearpeers To try an answer all your questions to the best of my ability I will do my best. First I had a hearing test completed, then my implant manager worked with the sounds with my processor. Holly Molly I could actually hear her voice but with noise in the background. She explained that will calm down eventually in time. My processor is flat and the other equipment they are resending back and giving me new up to date technology. Yay!! I had my implant process done at Boston Medical Center at the moakley building. Right now I am trying to learn my sounds with the background noise it's diffiently different to say the least. But I still have aways to go as you all here had too. I am also working with my remote to control my levels of sounds. I have completed stage 1,2 and now up to three. I will go to level four over the weekend so it's not overwhelming.
  7. Hi to all here at hearpeers Today I am in my way to Boston to meet with my implant manager today is initial activation day. I am somewhat nervous!! Thank you Lori
  8. Hi to hearpeers Question ? After you had your surgery did any of you experience verdigo and dizziness along with being nausea. Been sick every single day 😫 Verdigo seems to be getting better, but the dizziness is just there. Does this take time?

Then more follow ups. December, January, March Hopefully I am done after that. Thank you all for being here on this forum. Lori
