Welcome to hearpeers!!! This is a great community of folks from all over the world in various stages in their hearing journey. We have a few from Canada as well.

I am bilateral with CIs. Be sure to check out the BoneBridge section here. Ivana has a BB as well so I'm sure she will be welcoming you soon.

Feel free to share as much or as little about yourself as you would like. Ask as many questions as you can.

Hello Nicole,

 

Welcome at the Hearpeers and in the world of Bonebridge :D

 

I am unilateral BB user due to my conductive hearing loss as the consequence of middle ear changes since my birth.

 

Can you tell us little bit about yourself? :)

Hi!

This forum is quite new to me so hopefully I'm doing this right!

I'm unilateral Bonebridge user since January 26.

I also wanted to mentioned that MedEl did a blog of my "story" and was posted yesterday (February 3rd)

I was born with bilateral microtia atresia with profound to severe conductive hearing loss on the right side(the Bonebridge implant side) and moderate to severe on the left side. I had bone gray surgery to try to form an ear on the right side but still no opening or ear Cana ( this was done when I was a baby). I learned to lip read and didn't get hearing aid till I was 16 yrs old. Hearing aid didn't really work as my ear canal on left side is so tiny. Yes I've struggled all my life!

I'm not sure what else I should mention but am so glad about finding this forum!!

I'm so amazed at the quality and clarity of sounds that I can hear!!

Thanks for the welcome!!

Yes Nicole - everything is good. :)

You have never had a bone conduction solution on the headband or at least in the glasses? :blink:
