Ok next Monday I am back at Addenbrokes for another mapping I am wondering if they could put a bigger gap in between the programmes from the first mapping I have had four programmes each time ,they had programmed it four times so far and find by the end of the week it is going quiet again I think they are only moving it up a small bit at a time has anyone had it moved up quite a bit on each programme In November I have nt got any appointments and I am wondering if I should ask them for a couple just in case. My brain seems to be ajusting quickly to the ci and I am getting wow moments almost e

At first i was given three option are AB,cochlea and med el unfortunately only been given med el so i refused to have med el .i want AB the reason i look at speech processor on website that is the smallest one and when i see the real AB is was huge speech processor so i refused to have that & i told them i need some time to think about it ,Then i ask people with med el they are really pleased with it n been told tha

  9. Back from Addenbrooke's Hospital yesterday from the 2 weeks surgery check op, so far, so good, according to the x-ray the good news is that the electrode arrays is 100% all the way in the cochlear so all the channels for mapping will be available depending what I can hear on 1st October for the switch on. hello andrew that is fantastic news and all the best for switch on.You will have a exciting times ahead
  10. hey , i have totally forgot to ask him pop question about roller coaster but i have found my med el booklet , Rides which involve high speeds and/ or extreme forces may risk dislodging the internal parts of the cochlea implant and are therefore not recommended.The risk is greatest in the first 6 months after surgery,and in the longer term for those who are risk of the electrode array extruding from the cochlea ( check with your surgeon if in doubt ). For less extreme rides it id advisable to remove the external equipment (speech processor) if there is a risk that it be dislodged. It is p
  11. Thanks Steve, just one question, during the first week of hearing with the CI, could you carry on with your normal everyday life or take a step back for the time being? The reason I'm asking, I'm playing indoors bowls early October with people around me, as a guess, would it be too much for me to cope with the CI to start with because I can avoid playing the first month in October just to get used to the CI journey. if you're not sure don't worry! Hello andrew ,could i carry on ci on normal days basic oh yeah i am and enjoying a bit .If is too much for you take speech processor off give yourse
