My name is Marlene Huxter . I am 74 years of age , I have been deaf in my left ear for about 25 years , I had a brain tumour and my hearing was unable to be saved.
About 18 years ago I started wearing a hearing aid in my right ear, for a few years it worked ok but not great, it was changed numerous times. On the 5th of January 2017 I awoke to no sound. I must admit I was devastated.
I was fitted with a very powerful hearing aid but it helped little. So I received a Synchrony implant this past July 16, my activation was on August 6th. So far I think I’m doing ok and my Audi is very pleased. Things are not always easy to hear and I do not understand music and song anymore, but it’s early days. I will take what I can get
I have much to learn about everything but I am a very patient person and I look forward to meeting all of you with whatever help you can offer.
Thank you for being here
