    Tutz67 got a reaction from Kim in Med-El CI users in Australia   
    Well I am pleased to say the activation is going great!  The Audi, Louse at Attune Mt Barker, seems pretty pleased with the progress - I've had two mappings and I have started the online rehab, really pleased to say I can understand words, well most of them anyway!  Still have lots of odd and unusual noises but I worked out that if I turn the volume down a little,  it is a little clearer.   I had a bit of a problem with excessive nasal fluid and blood nose, Doc suggests that's the tubes clearing out after the op.  Seems to be pretty good now. Overall I seem to be adjusting quite well, a little confusing sorting out the bedside table with all the accessories - drying box, rechargeable batteries etc....   have managed to work out the Bluetooth/ computer link cords etc.     So exciting and rewarding!   Thanks to you all for your help, advice and support.    Cheers Lorna

    I am getting the Sonnet and the Rondo 2.  I am curious as to how the sound will differ between them both, and also how/if they operate with Bluetooth - but I guess that is one of the many questions that will be answered next week - I have a 2 hr appointment Monday and 2 hr appointment Tuesday.  Feeling excited and apprehensive at the same time.

    Thanks Daniel - Surgery went really well. Dr Chawla is exceptional - I feel very fortunate to have been directed  to him.  Healing has been pretty good - a couple of dizzy days but that seems to have passed.  I get activated on Monday and hopefully that goes as good as the surgery.

    Thanks for all your input, I am going ahead on 4 October - I am deaf on the left - the Audiologist & Med El spec has recommended the Sonnet and Rondo 2 - so, fingers crossed!  I am in South Oz, it seems to be more Cochlear than Med El and AB  used here.
