I'm a 28 years old female diagnosed with progressive hearing loss. It had been a difficult journey last 6 months visiting the audiologist every two weeks to reprogram my aids and visiting doctors to find the cause of my hearing loss. I could never feel things stabilizing. Finally my doctor has recommended me as a CI candidate. The cause is still unknown which is devastating. Hearing everyone's journey, I'm hopeful things would change for me. I need CIs for both ears, but I have decided to get one ear implanted first and use aid for residual in my other ear. I'm eligible for some accessories with my first CI. What kind of accessories are most helpful for outdoor activities and workplace?
I'm scheduled for surgery next month and definitely will appreciate some encouragement.
