  1. Hi All! I'm new to the Med El community and I've recently been implanted on my left side - 3 weeks ago tomorrow. My surgery went very smooth and my surgeon got the implant wrapped around the cochlea the first try. Amazing! Recovery was rough though - terrible nausea and vertigo Tuesday and part of Wednesday, went away and came back Friday to Sunday. A week after the surgery I really started to feel better, just a little tired. Now at almost week 3, I feel so much better! Almost my normal self. The only thing that bothers me now is the tenderness in certain spots by the incision and the feeling of an alien object on the side of my head. Does that go away??? My activation is on Friday, Nov. 11. It's very close and I'm excited but not too excited. My left ear has not really been working for about 20 years and I accept that I may not understand anyone or hear anything at first. Definitely trying to keep expectations in check. Since we're being honest, I almost went with Cochlear Americas. I am SO happy I didn't! At the last minute I changed my mind because the Med El implant was more advanced and better designed. Additionally, the content of the forums and blog articles were better and more useful to me. I was beginning to think no one had a hard time after the surgery until I came on here and read other people's stories. Thank you all for being honest about post-surgery and not minimizing the struggle to feel better after getting implanted! I don't feel so alone now Looking forward to getting know everyone and learning your stories! *Megan

    New user.. Post bonebridge

    Hey, Completely new to this so not quite sure what to say and will probably babble on.. But I came across this forum whilst searching post operative healing process as I wasn't too sure what to expect so thought I would give it a go. I've recently on the 25th of June had the Bonebridge implanted on my left side due to conductive hearing loss that's accured as a repocution to previous operations such as mastoid surgery and so on. Basically I was just hoping to get a bit of information from other people regarding their healing process and how you are all finding life with bonebridge? When I went down for the bonebridge surgery it didn't go quite to plan (not too sure why yet as I've still to speak to consultant) but it ended up taking just over 3 hours and as a result was sighted in a different area i believe as the part that you attach the magnet to is quite high up to the top of my head on the left side instead of behind the ear like I originally thougt so was just wondering where everyone else's is sighted? Also it's been 4 weeks now and the swelling of the area in which the samba/magnet attaches is still swollen (sort of like half a golf ball) on my head which I'm guessing is to be expected considering it took a little bit longer. Hope this made sense and look forward to hearing other people's bonebridge journeys.
