    Sorry Neil you are not happy with your implant. I am the opposite just amazed with what I can hear 3 months post. I rarely change the settings. I hear so well in restaurants now it's odd to see my husband struggle in a noisy room lol.  I too do not wear my right hearing aid now as I find it useless compare to my implanted left ear....

    @Kylie
    Experiencing all these changes in our brains is quite amazing isn’t it?
    I just put my processors on my head and go about my day.  I only use the FineTuner to switch into T for streaming audiobooks.
    I am glad everything is going so well for you. Pop into our WOW moments topic and share some of your WOW moments with us.

    My audiologist said an interesting thing to me at my last visit that seemed counter intuitive at first. (I'm 4 months in). She said try not to use the controls unless really desperate - instead make my brain learn to make the adjustments. As it does in normal organic hearing. She said it may be hard but over time it will work out. So I've been following this and it is interesting. I definitely use the controls at times in the most challenging environments but try to minimise it. I can tell though that my brain is starting to sort out some types of background noise.  I think she's right that perseverance seems to be the key.

    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...   😋

    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....

    Thank you Mary Beth. Yes I have read many people did not have a great activation. I will be ok as I am doing fine with the hearing aid in my right ear and reading lips. It's a start and so let the games begin..   lol

    Yes I have read so many replies from lovely people saying to be patient and not have to many expectations when they hook me up.    If I am one the lucky ones great but I doubt it, so I'll be ready for beeps and weird noises 🙂  .
