    So, there is no need of map adjusting, just switching on the part of physical hardware... Cool - glad you all have survived the waiting period... Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. Long and hard way, but as time passes by my satisfaction with what I encounter on my way or I can do - just raise. You know that feeling when people put their thumbs in a way of special support. That makes me proud and gives me a strength to continue my efforts. I am just in a middle if that cycle where I KNOW what should be done...[emoji6] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. Exactly Adam... We are dealing with invisible perspectives - hearing is the only invisible disability. People are not used to deal something what might be a sort of Matrix material. It's very hard to find a person who completely understand the problem. Or at least that - only sky is limit. What I can get if my hearing - only I know. When I was younger, my music teacher advised my parents to take musical lessons. Although I literally hate them [emoji16] - I know they helped me to develop my proficient sense of hearing.... to develop sort of qualities whise are very hard to understand, yet - only I can sense them when I hear them... For instance, listening of Beethoven's 7th Symphony, 2nd part... Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. Of course Adam, nobody would even think about an option where you should change the haircut you love. I, first, can not change ny face - neither I would want that. It's me, and people who participate in my life is enough. Too many of superficial relationships make me wonder about the shallowness of life. But, of course - lots of people are just shy to ask. I know that because when I started my residency, for a two years nobody knows for my hearing handiccape. Then happened Bonebridge and I started to realize that it wasn't the fact they didn't care - they just couldn't realize that's the problem. They immediately started to question all aspects of my life - then I realized the importance of building bridges between people which I have to learn how to do that. This started to fulfill me...[emoji3][emoji56] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Hello Valentin, Forums I have mentioned are about different things: cars, bycicles, miscellanous, tourism, technology. So Tapatalk is only a platform where people can search exactly what they are interested for instead googling them - who knows whether they would even find them...? So HP is just one among other forums. According to my knowledge, Germans talk very good English. But, if not - there is always translate option. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. So, you understand Adam when I said that my previous hearing aid modification altered my reality in most strange way: you understand under certain circumstances what has been said, but - this was just my interpretation - not my real experience. It's very strange hear this from a person who has a conductive hearing loss. Not just people than other professionals think - ok, this is it: you hear normal. But, heck... we also need adjustments.

  7. Couldn't agree more...[emoji3] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. You know what... This is another great question, Adam. When I started using my Bonebridge, I have started to notice a lot better dialects which are obviously different and those which are just slightly different. I haven't done this before... [emoji53] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Ugh, staring is a favourite sport in my homeland...[emoji51] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. MB, You literally fascinated me by your quest for persisting improvement within all fields: technical details, equipment, rehabilitation process, your commitment regarding the understanding of the matter... Awhhhh....[emoji3] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Adam, you are naturally talented motivator - this fact hooked me to this forum, I even got a strong desire to start my professional grow-up in the field of sound perception of people with CI. This is extremely fascinating when we take into account - it's Majesty: The Brain and its ability to acquire its astonishing capability of individual adaptation due to the process of neuroplasticity. But, of course - I will never forget your incentive and encouragement to explore my research of newly developed skill, a search for clarity and understanding in total.

  12. Second in a row - I am your neighbour across the Adriatic sea - Croatia, Alessandro.[emoji6] For a pretty long time, I was fascinated by the fact that our neighbours don't have separate greeting for morning and day, so - in both cases, it's - Buongiorno. [emoji4] However, although I am the Bonebridge implantee, I would be extremely interesting: how the activation passed by, but also - a comparison between these 2 models taking into account that there the implantations took a place 20 years between. Good luck! [emoji6] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. [emoji16] graphomaniacs you say Cara...? Glad you like it - there are forums around the world about almost everything...[emoji16] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. ok, science behind this is add-on up to the hearing preservation techniques. This approach has sense - a lot, because it effects the implantation process at its prolonged phase - the phase of recovery and the response of body. It would be great to read a whole article to see what made these scientists to look at this direction. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. Hm... Not sure if these trials are worth of trying... If it doesn't work - it doesn't work... Miracles happens only when we help them making to happen, and CI is far from that. Back to reality... I have heard a colleague at a congress from Spain who mentioned that different hospitals have different way of getting CIs. He didn't touch any detail, but I concluded between the lines it's a very complex path. If hearing aids does not help much - it is illusion even think about it. Perhaps you can consult another consultant...? Reading your lines, every scenario is possible... ?? Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  16. well.. living in Europe, at such interesting [emoji16] GPS coordinates makes your complete life pretty much interesting... and, I haven't even touched the base with Hungarian language...[emoji4][emoji3] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  17. yeah... I thought so... ? Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  18. Hi Haidee... Huh,... Although you are at pain now and worry much about what will happen, I can asure you that everything will come up just as a bad dream. Do you have conductive or sensorineural hearing loss as the indication for the implantation of the Bonebridge? I am the Bonebridge implantee, after everything settles down - we would gladly like to read your story. Nevertheless, we are here for you...[emoji6] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  19. Me too GirlZ [emoji39][emoji7][emoji7] But, I wasn't sleeping - I have worked on a home project, hopefully I will find some time within next few days to write few lines ...[emoji3][emoji8] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  20. Cool... [emoji41] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  21. ugh... I needed adjustment - elevator was near our working space - doc's offices and operating room for small procedures... ugh... ugh... Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  22. Ouch Ben - now you really hooked me on ... I can't wait... ??
  23. Cheers! [emoji40][emoji40][emoji3][emoji3] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  24. Well, I understand this Be cautious warning but if someone wants to reconstruct this, they will succeed no matter what we do... [emoji57]? Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  25. I don't know either, although I have got all messages from the participants who has participated in the topic about the HP blog has shown up. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
