Pre operative questions

Hi,  I am waiting for the surgeon to schedule my surgery.  I am excited and scared.  I will be implanted in my left ear.  What type of anesthesia did you have?  And, if you work outside the home, how long did it take until you felt like returning to work?   Thanks.

Hi Lynn,

 

I wish you the best.  I had general anesthesia.  I am a teacher and returned to work after 1 week.  I had restrictions on lifting items over 10 pounds, etc but that did not impact work.

 

Which processor are you getting?

Hi Mary Beth,

Thanks for the info.  That is kind of what I am expecting.  I chose the Sonnet. What do you have?

I have Sonnet, Rondo and Opus2 processors.  Which CI center are you using?  I had my surgeries at New York Eye & Ear in NYC.

Barnes Hospital in St. Louis, MO.

I chose the new Roger.  

Are you doing well since implant?

So you will be getting the Sonnet processor and chose the Roger Pen and receiver accessory?

I am doing terrific.  Thanks for asking.  These CIs are amazing.

Hi Lynn! Welcome to the group. I have a right sided implant with a sonnet also. I had general aneasthesia as well. Best of luck on your surgery.
