    Kara,
    It's a journey and not a straight one at that. You will find that when you move up in programs initially it is awesome and then as your nerve settles in to the stimulation, things become too quiet. This happens to all of us at the beginning of the journey. Sometimes you get a new map and it takes time to adjust to it. You actually move backwards a bit before you leap forward.
    It's amazing but it does require patience.
    Enjoy the ride.

    Hi Juliette,
    Glad to hear that you progress so well
    Further, you need some time that everything settles down - I also had some temporary changes but you need to have in mind that tonal audiogram is highly subjective method. It's much more important speech audiometry regarding function than facts overall.
    Regarding your magnet, if you have skin itch it may be that this magnet is too strong.

    You will adapt - each time I go through the fitting I sound to myself little bit overamplified. But this will change and you'll need re-fitting when you start feeling that your intelligibility decrease. But then, generally you'll need just increasing the volume and perhaps timber adapt. But you'll see...
    This is excellent news!
    Keep observing each day what is not understandable and work than with your audiologist.
    And keep your eye on that swelling - it should go away.

    Of course, although if swelling does not settle down you may experience difficulties to keep your outer unit on the spot because magnet can be too distant to have effective connection so it can fall down.
    But, we'll definitely cross our fingers that everything settle down so you don't get more serious situation.

    Hello Juliette and welcome to the HP,
     
    Can you explain us little bit - what do you mean when you mention a pain: is it from your surgical incision? Is the place of implantation clean, without any suspicious change in colour or possible oedema? In other words, is there any inflammation?
     
    Also, same thing with hearing.... Although some times there is possibility to subjectively hear little bit less but there is no reason (especially with BB) to interfere with your hearing. 
     
    I didn't have any kind of pain - actually I ran a bike for 30 km 4 days after surgery, I honestly thought that my surgeon will kill me
