Hello everyone.  Surgery was December 27 and was just activated today so I'm a super-new user. I was eager to get started with this process after struggling for the last few years. Looking through the suggested rehab sites, I'm baffled where to begin.  "Here" seems like a good place to start. Grateful for this site and any guidance I can get. Thanks to all.

Welcome Theo!  It might be your first post but you are already ahead of me - my activation is on Thursday. I'm SSD so I'll need to work on making sure I don't use my good ear as a crutch. 

What processor(s) did you get?  I'll be getting both the Rondo 3 and Sonnet 2 and then figuring out what works best for me for my actual usage.

Looking forward to chatting as we go down the road about the same time even though everyone says to be careful to not get stressed about comparing progress with other people, it is nice have  other people at the same stage.

Congratulations @Theo!  Which processor are you using?

 

Definitely my favorite app for starting out is Word Success.  Skip the pretest and begin with step 1.

Whoops! Guess I have a few more things to learn!

Rondo 3 and Sonnet 2 will be my hearing helpers.  Thanks Mary Beth for the suggestions. I visited my library today the picked up a few novels to pair with audio books from Libby via the library.  I'm told it may help to follow along reading while listening. We shall see.

Hope things go well for you at activation. The process is pretty fascinating. It  was helpful that the audiologist didn't introduce me to the entire MedEl package at the first appointment, probably would have overwhelmed me with information. 

I too have Rondo 3 and Sonnet 2 on left and a bit of hearing in my right ear. Even that bit, I'm finding, is a distraction when doing listening exercises. Hopefully, the left and  right will meet each other in my brain and all will be well. Best of luck to you.
