I just had my post op visit ( cochlear implant surgery was aug 31) ) activation is Sept 29.surgeon says everything looks good and I can do anything but contact sports!she did say when I asked that full healing is 4-6 weeks .my ear still feels a little numb and the area of the implant and incision still is tender ..my ear still has a full feeling ..I know it varies I was just wondering people experiences how long it took for them to feel "normal" :)

That's awesome Jane! Glad to hear things are going well. Yes the "full" feeling varies for everyone. Mine was very painful for quite some time.

Kara is right.  It varies for everyone.  I didn't experience the full feeling in my ears but I did experience my outer ear feeling numb and some taste disturbance.  Both improved over time and everything is back to completely normal.  I do not recall how long it took.

Thanks that's what I thought I've just been reading past forums of people talking about the healing process and how it varies for everyone..
