HearPeers Heroes Jewel Posted November 6, 2017 HearPeers Heroes Report Share Posted November 6, 2017 Hello. In 2012 I did a hearing test in the US and was advised that I need two CIs. That came as a shock. I started losing my hearing following a head injury in 1999. Got my first HA in 2009. I have been able to survive with one HA since. However I can't hear over the phone. I also have recruitment hearing. Right now I have a problem hearing if the AC in the room is loud. Would I have that problem if I have a CI? Do any of you attend large meetings, say with 20 people around a table and are you able to make out what's being said in the meeting? I am also curious as to how much it will cost for a CI plus the tests and the subsequent rehabilitation. Where I live the insurance company will not stand any of the costs for a CI so I'm here trying to figure out the costs and whether I will be able to afford it. It would mean a lot of air travel to get tested etc. Also did you lose your residual hearing in your implanted ear? Does the internal component give you headaches?
