hearingmiracle Posted August 18, 2016 Report Share Posted August 18, 2016 Dear all, as a parent I would want my child age 2 who had sever to profound loss not to suffer much pain in Ci surgery . Doctor advise to do sequential CI. I felt simultaneous CI would relieve my daughter the pain of going through the surgery twice. However she might have difficulties sleeping with either side due to surgery pain in both ear. doctor also say that it takes 1 month to activate CI. So during this one month of waiting, if she couldn't hear anything since both CI were on her ear. Imagine there is no input sound to the brain for one month. It feel terrible. I am really confused to do simultaneous or sequential CI. my doctor wants me to consider continue with hearing aid for another 3 month before going for CI..... But I really feel a hearing aid for severe to profound hearing loss won't help her in high frequency tones.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
