Lynn Agnes posted a topic in Single-Sided DeafnessI had sudden onset of single sided deafness three and a half years ago in my left ear. It was diagnosed as sensorineuro hearing loss. My right ear has normal hearing but has had one recent surgery to remove inflammatory tissue from my middle ear. Since the onset of hearing loss, I have had great difficulty localizing sound and also hearing in noisy environments. I am hoping that the cochlear implant will help me with these. Localizing sound is a safety issue for me as I do a lot of walking and bicycling in the community. I would love to hear from others with single sided deafness with nor
PamR posted a topic in Introduce YourselfI’m in evaluation for CI for single-sided deafness - sudden idiopathic hearing loss in May 2017 and another major loss in Dec 2019 - only 28% word recognition now and significant tinnitus in bad ear. The other ear is fine. So far, I’m told I am a good candidate for the procedure. I’ve had excellent hearing all my life until these events at age 64.

She concluded it was conductive because the bone conduction test was good. After doing research, I found conductive hearing loss can
Hello, Everyone, As a woman in her mid-60s, I have congenital sensorineural hearing loss in both ears, and wear hearing aids in both ears. I am basically deaf in the right ear, with have decent speech discrimination in the left. With my current set of hearing aids, I can hear/sense a little bit of sound from my deaf side but zilch discrimination, giving me some directional information as to where to turn. I've been told that a bi-cros hearing aid solution would give me better hearing, but no directional information at all. However, recently several audiologists have told me that I
