No hearing after activation, only "sensations"


Recommended Posts



I am 29 year old woman and was born profoundly deaf.

I had my CI surgery three weeks ago and now the implant was activated.

I am feeling a little down because I don't "hear" nothing, I just have these sensations in my chest instead of hearing. For now my implant is with the volume turned down, it will be gradually turned up. I tried it with the volumes higher and I had more strong "sensations", like my own voice, the voice of other people, etc. For now, I am trying to get used to it.


My question is does it get better, will I be able to hear something (like I hear with my hearing aid) ? I am confused and a little dissapointed at the moment.


Thank you.
