Adam,

 

I am so sorry to hear this.  You have a great attitude and I know it will help you heal.  Sending healing thoughts your way.  Are you able to wear both processors while you heal or are you don to only one processor at the moment?

I am able to wear both. That whole area is tender and swollen but the coil still stays on

Hey mate, I saw on FB that you were back under the knife.

Gotta be time to put some velcro on there.

Hope you're feeling better.

Hi Matt,

 

Where in the world are you traveling now?  Haven't seen a recent picture of you and a Med-El audiologist from another country in awhile!  Smile.

Hahaha.

I'm at home for a while - will be heading to Europe later this year and will plan a visit to HQ in Austria if I can.

Not sure if I posted my pic from Taiwan? I went swimming with the processor and had to visit the importer there for a check up.

Hey mate,

I asked him if he could install a zipper to make it easier for the next one. I thought it was a great idea but he wasn't on board. Oh well. 

I am home now plan on returning to work soon. I did make it a year and a half without a surgery though.  No back to square one.

Adam, I am glad to hear that you are fine now. I wish it would be the last surgery you needed. But if it is not the case, at least I wish you have longer spans between surgeries each time it is necessary.

I appreciate all the kind words and thoughts from everyone. This was surgery number 40 for me. Only my 19th brain surgery though. ?

I'll keep plugging away, one foot in front of the other. My wife noticed some symptoms I was having and brought it up to me.i denied it was the shunt as I desperately did not want another surgery. I ended up going to the hospital as I went downhill pretty quickly. Sure enough, the little bugger wasn't working. 

Another year and a half would be fantastic Cara. I'd gladly take that

Admitted back in the hospital tonight. Another possible brain surgery. Will know in the next day or so

had to explain that I was deaf to the nurse as "but you can hear me fine" came out of his mouth. Not if my processors are off..

Oh no Adam! I'm so sorry to hear that. 

Sending you good vibes that you don't need another surgery! 

Your nurse will find out we have an on and off switch ?
