  1. Hi Marybeth I haven't but it's worth a shot to see if they could fix vestibular hairs that have been completely damaged.
  2. 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

  4. 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.

Now I am basically just waiting. Ty
  5. 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

  10. Hi I'm hoping someone out there can answer a question of mine. Was wondering how long did each individual have to wait upon the Cochlear implant process? I believe I am at the best I can be by going into this. It's been one year and two months for I had other complications that had arised. But doing better with all! Thanks Lori
  11. Hi The reason why they directed myself in this particular situation is because I carry dizziness and I'm currently off balance. I am on medication to help but not completely. My understanding is they are perparing myself before and after. I am just awaiting!! Thanks
  12. Hi Everyone I am new to this and I have questions to ask 1. How long did you all have to wait until you could actually recieve the Impant ? What was your porcess? Did you have to gain Med. Psychiatrist / psychiattrist? I am close on this and told to go into this with EXCITMENT. Thank You Lori
  13. Hi Lynn Agnes I am currently in psychiatry and med psychiatry to perpare me for this, I do as well have two more appointments with them to see if I'm Mind, Body, Heathly ready. In the beginning stage my team mentioned that I wasn't ready. I am doing better since they had helped me with the depression and anxiety of this. They have seen a great imnprovemnent within mysself. Its been allot of hard work. Thank you Lori
  14. Hi Lynn Agnes I was introduced to this forum by my Cochlear Implant Manager. I do agree with you on the loss of hearing, (Myseslf just Dumbfounded) this took a toll on myself. Not knowing where your sound is coming from makes this a challenge, and most certianly has it's fair of struggles. I'm also battling a balance disorder and using my eyes as my (conpensatiion.) I have read so much material for the Cochlear Implant. The tears that I carry within just to know that iIhave a fantastic team working with myself. I realize this is a process and everyone has thier own journey to tell. Thank you Lori
  15. Hi Mary Beth My choice of Cochlear Implant Is MED EL. I am having my surgery in the State of Boston. Alos in place is a wonderful team aboard.
  16. Hi I am new here I lost my right hearing completely about a year ago. I have meant with a Cochlear Implant Manager whom is very nice out of Boston, we went over different devices to best fit myself. (I choice MED EL) I am also currently working witth a Psychiatrists and med Psychiatrist in Boston to help with anxiety and depression. For they say I am not Mind, Body, Heatly at this time, but getting closer to the surgery date. I have also started a Journal about (Self) which has helped me along the way. My question would be to you what was the process? What was the journey? I am mosrt certiantly nervous with all. Thank you for reading
