HearPeers Heroes Jdashiell Posted April 17, 2017 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted April 17, 2017 I will be getting my second (Left ear this time) activated on April 28. Two weeks to go. Five weeks post surgery. I was hearing OK using my HA on that ear but was a candidate for CI for speech recognition reasons. Now after surgery I am limited to one sided hearing as the HA no longer helps and I am told do not wear it while healing. So I am now deaf in the left ear. what an experience. It has een a difficult time hearing and understanding with others since the surgery. I am hoping when I get activated with the new processor, I will adjust as quickly or faster than I did on my right ear CI. Note it has been exactly one year between the two ears. I am curious to hear from others who are bilaterally implanted - how did you do when the second CI was activated? Was it easier? completely different? I am attending a business meeting 3 days after I am activated and am nervous. Joe Julesrdh 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
