  1. Hello everyone, Just wanted to check in and say I am loving my Sonnet. The world of hearing is an awesome one and I am enjoying hearing so much from the past. I am starting to appreciate music again also.. Hope everyone is doing well....
  2. Big congrats. Sounds like you are doing wonderfully. I was at my one week post activation, I too have hearing very very well. It's not perfect but voices are sounding much better. The key thing for me was to be able to have conversations without lip reading 90 percent of the conversation. Good times ahead... πŸ˜‹
  3. This is good to know. Thank you...
  4. I am getting the hang of these re-chargable batteries no problem. Question is it worth while to put a battery in the charger before bed that still has some charge in it? Or should I continue to use it the next day and let the charge drain?
  5. Oh wow, I am getting 12.5 so far. I will get used to changing them I am sure. But with hearing aids my disposables were lasting 12 days. However I was living in a quiet world....
  6. How long do your re-chargeable batteries last? I am finding with brand new standard batteries just over 12 hours....
  7. Ha ha it's quite the adventure these cochlear implants lol
  8. Wishing everyone the best. So far I am hearing and understanding speech so much better I can't believe it... πŸ™‚
  9. Thank you again Mary Beth for your comments. The dishwasher and doing dishes is super loud and overwhelming. I was not sure that was normal lol Just at level 2 post 2 days from activation so I would guess by next Friday the 26th I may have advanced to level 4 for that appointment. I was outside doing yard work tonight and I heard a cardinal for the first time in over 25 years, just wow is all I can say... πŸ™‚
  10. This is good to know. A Harley bike just went down the street oh boy was brutal....
  11. Well I am doing very well and hearing so much including speech I thought I would try level 2 on my Sonnet , there seems to be a bit of a lisp to peoples voices, yes everything is louder. Plates and cups are super loud as well as many other things. How did everyone make out as they went through the different levels on your processor?
  12. Thank you Mary Beth, I really appreciate this forum and all the advice. The receptionist asked me yesterday if I was excited I said no lol Oh she said, I explained I didn't expect much for this visit and frankly I had my doubts it would work lol. But work it did, super pleased..
  13. @Mary Beth I choose the Sonnet , I will be getting the Roger's select on my week follow up visit. I was considering purchasing the Rondo 2 for a second processor, I have 3 months from activation to buy it for half price. Not sure I need it but had a hard time decided which processor to choose . I am happy with the Sonnet I'll have to think about the Rondo 2...
  14. Hello there, It was unreal!! Everything was like robots and Micky Mouse, but then I could start to understand the audiologist voice and amazingly I could understand what she was saying to me without reading her lips!! My daughter was with me and we had to pass the Kleenex . I am finding paper, utensils, doors opening and closing and other sounds really loud. I assume this will come to be normal. Perhaps each mapping will help this as well. But wow this was an amazing day for me....
