  1. Hi, I just discovered this forum and hope there are some Bonebridge recepients on here who can share their experience with me. I have SSD in my right ear from Meniere's. I knew my hearing had been getting worse, but I hadn't had an audio exam for several years until this past spring when I had a very bad recurrence of vertigo and sought out a new ENT, since I had moved. Testing showed that I had profound loss now with very low speech recognition in that ear and was told I was officially SSD. I was given the option to trial a CROS aid for 6 weeks, which I did, but was not satisfied with it. It was then that I revisited the surgeon who suggested a BAHA. I was scheduled to have the surgery for that next month, but the surgeon called me back last week to discuss receiving a Bonebridge instead as they had recently been approved for use in the US (don't know why the FDA is so slow!) and she & the audiologist feel I am a good candidate. I am now scheduled to receive the Bonebridge on Dec. 13th- an early Christmas present!!. I am excited about it, but somewhat apprehensive as well, as I will be the first person my surgeon has implanted and the first Bonebridge recipient at this hospital (Duke in NC). I am not concerned about the surgeon's skill- she does CI surgeries all the time & I figure this will be much easier than that. It just would be nice to hear some first hand accounts of the recovery from the surgery and how well it is working once the processor is activated. Thanks.
  2. Hi everyone! I am waiting for new BB version with water resistance and chargeable battery. Anyone know any informations about it, please let me know release date?
  3. Dear all, I have got the audiometric measurement for some month ago (I attached), and my audiometric is not change so much in long time according to my doctor. I always wondered that is it suitable for bone bridge implants? So can you give me some suggestions. Thanks. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3UpRhlBqqhtMURwMWRpMFExRmM/view?usp=sharing
  4. Hi, I recently became ssd in my left ear. I had some questions about cochlear implants. 1. How does a CI sound in one ear compare to normal hearing from the other, will they confuse eachother or will hearing become normal on both sides? 2. Will CI's prevent any future treatment from stem cells in pipeline. 3. Does it matter how much time passes from when i lost my hearing to getting the CO, as I am very much still trying to make a decision on this. 4. Would anyone in the same position share whether they thought it was worth it or better just living with one ear. Or perhaps a bone bridge would be a good solution? 5. Has anyone heard of the advancement in completely in ear CIs? I read an article on this but there seems to be nothing since 2014? Many Thanks
  5. Hi I have just joined this forum to read of others experiences. I am day 4 postoperative from bilateral bonebridge. I was told the surgery went well. I understood that there would not be a lot of pain postoperative but I am still experiencing a fair bit. When I woke in recovery my ear flaps were very sore and still are. They are also sticking out quite a bit. The op sites are not really that sore though. Any thoughts on this??
  6. 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 op 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 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.
