  1. Hi thanks for the positive thoughts and wishes .. the CI are dealing with it and have dealt with SSHL one sided , which makes it more of a challenge .. But fingers crossed . It’s the waiting game it’s so hard .. Thanks once again
  2. Thank you .. No word yet been 2 weeks ..
  3. Hello all,, my insurance is still pending . The office told me that I may get denied a few times. And they will appeal .. I think as I have single sided deafness may be the issue ..But I also have slight loss in my right to .. Its very frustrating with my hearing and the waiting game is horrible.. I guess they have to give u a date for surgery for insurance purposes? Also have to get a check up in the next week for overhaul EKG vaccines blood work .. Thanks for everyone who responded , this site is a pleasure to be on and nice to have people out there who understand how u feel... Karen
  4. Hello, Thanks for getting back so promptly .. appreciated .. I’m having a cochlear implant done in NYU Langone .. where I go they do push for the Kanso . Seem to update more frequently and the processor has two microphones .. which I’m tending to lead towards .. I haven’t received a letter yet ...
  5. Hello , im just wondering how long it takes to hear back from your insurance company about having a cochlear implant coverage .. I already have the surgery date and all the follow up appointments sent to me .. Would the insurance company send me a letter or email ? Thanks karen
  6. Hi thanks .. yes that did help .. I work in a nosy environment and have lab meetings .. also work with animals so they get very loud .. Also I go to the gym and dance to ..
  7. Then to Dr Friedmann at the NYU school of medicine on 1st ave
  8. I am going to NYU Langone Medical Center. For the hearing tests I had done and to meet up with Dr Shapiro to go over CI devices.
  9. Hello everyone, Just curious which is more popular the Kanso or the Rondo 2. I see others have asked similar questions. Is the Kanso upgraded more frequent and have more options than the Rondo 2. I understand in a way why people may go for the Rondo 2 as it is slimmer and rechargable. Which makes it more appealing I guess. Plus being a middle aged women I guess a little vein would want something to cover up as much as possible . But I did talk to a gentlman at NYU cochlear center and he was more pushed to lean towards the Kanso. Which is loves. I go back next week to talk to the Dr about CI devices then see the surgeon after. Big decision to make. Thanks once again
  10. I am a candidate for a cochlear implant. Now it’s the insurance company .. off to see the Dr about choosing the device for me and then the surgeon.. it’s all overwhelming I guess , something you never think you will loose is your hearing Andy how it effects your day to day life .
  11. Hello thanks for asking . I’m in New York
  12. Thank you all for the quick response
