violinmemories Posted February 8, 2013 Report Share Posted February 8, 2013 As you know I'm getting Med-El on March 5th, my activation date is March 27th. Over the past few weeks I have been slowly getting stuff together, I know I have time to get the rehab stuff together, but I wanted to start a file now for after my activation; reason being that I want to make sure I am prepared and I will know exactly where my information is, so I am not hunting around for exercises and support. Can someone tell me if you get information on rehabilitation at the activation or is this something I do on my own time? I will be the first adult in my state to be implanted with a Med-El, my surgeon has done children at the local hospital but just recently the adult hospital approved the purchase of Med-El, they currently do Cochlear America. While this is really exciting, right now it's a little scary for me as I'm guessing it's going to be a trial and error as to what works and what doesn't. Or am I just inviting problems and seeing things where there really aren't. Anyways, can some of you tell me what helped you after the activation to train the brain better? Is there a specific type of music I should start out listening to (Classical, Jazz, Hip Hop, etc..), telephone numbers to practice with (of course with time). Any help will be greatly appreciated.
