  1. Not at all Adam, just wanted to point out there is another topuc with same qyestion but with many answers so if someone find this one, there is another one - with more information. [emoji6][emoji4] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. I can imagine that, although my sensations were clear - but the intensity was... ahhh.... Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. I am not much familiar with Cochlear's models, but I would say that Nucleus 5 and 6, after all are updated models regarding tech details. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk

  6. Please do, I like to read my forums over it... Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. They ask a lot...? [emoji2] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. Higher frequencies were lost at first, so a person's brain has to sort this thing individually. Although I do not have SNHL, I have never heard before my activation such a clear and sharp noise like an elevator made it although I was even 50m far away... So I can understand it...

  10. After all your posts Adam, I would conclude that Americans are very interesting people. I guess, I would never see this episode in Criatia. Or at least, extremely hard... Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. Auditory migraine... well, I haven't read anything particularly smarter than a year before but I can discuss a theiry where migraine is not caused by her CI than sound individually. Did migraines start with the implantation and are attacks appear only when she has a CI on? Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Hi Valentin, please explain - in what relation? What kind of headache? Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Adam - my friend... ? The Tapatalk is an application for mobile phones which you can find either in the App store or in the Google Play store. Through their platform you can search and read all sort of forums published wherever in the world... Cool, ha? [emoji6] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. I am delighted to find out that Hearpeers is available in the Tapatalk app. [emoji2] when I made this proposition about a year ago, I didn't know whether it' s possible or not, but I am pretty sure this will improve readability of the Hearpeers forum. It is much easier to read it in an app than reading small print in a web-browser... Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. cool...! [emoji8] Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  16. Hello Janet, yes - it is possible, it was developed for markets where anasthesiologist is very expensive or there are lack of them. Yes - this can happen... All in all, personally - you have to be very stable person. Psychologically, at first place. No, you really do not feel anything if local anastetic is given in appropriate dosage and at exact spot. You really,, really, reeeally have to be fearless to go through this process... Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  17. Well, they have just add a direct link toward our forum, but I think - that' s the point; not separating us than connecting us. If there is possibility to add sort of translation service like in FB where almost any language can be translated into a domicile one.... This would be great...

  18. Italian... Well, I have never learnt it (sorry MB [emoji4]), but some elementary level is pretty much understandable - not too fast, more like sort of song... Inspite of that, it is pretty understandable language for a person like me... Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  19. The other observation goes in the direction of German/Austrian language... Pretty everything is here clear and understandable as German language is strict, without much of thick accents except some local like Schwäbisch. The main difficulty is the speed of the pronounciation of their language - they talk really fast. Sent from my EVA-L09 using Tapatalk
  20. Ugh, thus is a very good topic Adam [emoji4] To me, the most understandable accent is - the American [emoji39] After that comes - English. Scotish, Walsh'es and, particularly - Northern Irish: it' s a death sentence for me. Also, I remember - Australian is also a pain in the brain... I guess this is the matter of how much opportunity you had to listen them. As most of movies on our market are from the U.S., I guess it is understandable... but on the other side, my particular type of hearing loss has never allowed to me to pay attention regarding all words. At the same time, I have learnt English as a foreign language - this helped me to learn how to understand even pretty complex words. For instance, try to pronounce word CHOIR if you never heard it... On the other side, our grammar was very strict - the Cambridge+Oxford's.... In Croatia, English was never learnt like in India - either you had learnt it and you know it, either you do not understand it at all... there is no strange pronounciation, or short abbreviation.

  21. So Cara - have you had opportunity to play a little bit with your hearing toys?
  22. Hello Jannine, I am feeling sorry because you experience unexpected pain - do you take any pain relief medication? Postoperative day 4 is still early on your healing way, as you have observed you have and will have oedematous temporal flap for at least a month. Perhaps, it was not well described to you but, essentialy the BB implantation is cortical mastoidectomy. I can not tell - "it is nothing...", although - everybody responds individually... For instance, I did not have any pain at all (but I am little bit awkward example). I am a unilateral BB implantee, 3,5 years up to now. My advice to you is to take a plenty of rest, try to exercise a bit (it did help to me), take a pain relief medication... If I may ask you, what is your "hearing loss history", how did you hear for and made your choice for BB?
  23. Hello Tracey - from Croatia, Just a quick note, if I have understood you well - you are bilaterally hearing impaired to the extent that BB would not be an efficient solution unless just one ear is not involved. If you had just single-sided-deafness, you might be able to use BB -but with 2 ears...,
  24. Hello Lisabeth, Can you describe little bit more specifically - what exactly happens? You do not hear anything at all? Or you have different sounds.... It would be great if you can conduct some basic tests which would tell more about the function of your Eustachian tube and middle ear - how does this affect....
  25. Hello Teresa Can you tell us more about yourself... We like to hang here and to share any information which might help any member here... Ask as much as you need - we know many tricks...;)
