  2. Hi Duncan Have you been switched on yet? Do you have the Amade or the Samba? I was the first in the UK to have bi lateral bonebridges! I adore them ))
  3. I have the bonebridge implants bi-lateral. 1st fitted 12/06/2014, 2nd fitted 15/12/2014.. I am still suffering with headaches. What implants does he have? xx
  4. Hi Joanna, Sorry I've only just seen this. I had constant infections from grommets, t-tubes and hearing aids so thats why I was referred to a bone anchored specialist. I was seen by the surgeon and implanted both sides within 10 months Funding from the NHS had to be applied for though.. The bonebridge is about £10000 an implant and the Baha is about £8000 so there isn't much difference especially when the infection risk is much lower on a bonebridge. I chose the bonebridge because of the same reason your thinking.. I didn't fancy a screw poking out of my head. Add me on fb if you like So
  5. I was the same, In certain situations for instance If I went to a restaurant or bar with just the 1 processor it was such a struggle, not tried it out with 2 yet I'm still recovering, but the difference between the 1 and the 2 is unreal! I hope your Insurance company is quick. Its the best thing I ever did I don't know what ypu mean by levels of loudness? I just know I can now hear well I've also been hard of hearing since day 1 but not profoundly deaf, I've always had operations since day 1 or some sort of aid of hearing but they cause constant infections. Life begins at 23. Cant wait )
  6. Oh Ivana, Its crazy! I didn't think there was going to be such a big difference between the 1 and the 2 implants.. When I take 1 of processors of now i feel like I'm almost deaf again even though I've managed with just one for 6 months

  10. Hey guys!! All done.. with a struggle Cant wait for switch on day and for this very sore head to go! Sophs
  11. Sorry 100% Deaf can't hear nothing from your ear.. Wow thats just threw me a bit, I was under the impression the bonebridge could only be used if there was some sort of hearing there naturally.. And I thought cochlear implants was for those who couldn't hear at all. I understand people are deaf due to many different reasons. I think I need to do a bit more research! I've recently just seen for sale a hat with headphones in.. Do you think that may work if you positioned the ear piece slightly above the magnet and strapped it on.. because I presume they are the in the ear type headphones
  12. I spoke with my audiologist and booked in switch on day for bonebridge number 2 for the 30th December.. So I'll be bi-laterally hearing my way into a new year She confirmed it will be the amade I'll be getting
