Hi everyone, glad to be here... I have a daughter with CI on left ear, she has her one&only CI 3 years ago and now she's about to be 5 years old (in 3 months) Some doctors and Medel people say that she should have her second implantation. But because it has been 3 years after the first implantation and she's at the age of almost 5, we hesitate to have the second CI surgery. Is there any other children, who have had the same case? If she would be older, like 7 years old or sth like that, we think that if she would want it, we would do it, she could draw her own way. But as she's still 5 years old, the decision is ours to make... and we do really really scared and bewildered about the decision... Can you share some case studies, your case or some academic research about our situation? Thx a lot for your interest... Regards...
