Daniel the Stranger Posted May 28, 2018 Report Share Posted May 28, 2018 Hi guys, I was activated today. Very happy with the results so far in the sense that all my electrodes are intact and working as they should. Tested with different sounds, I could differentiate the high from low pitches. Everything sounds like helium, even while I'm typing on the keyboard. Same with voices, all of them sound like helium voices. Wind is the only different sound I have got, I felt it like a person blowing a whistle. Sometimes I need to remove the processor to make sure that I'm getting sounds and not the tinnitus giving me false sensations. Audiologist decided to go for the cautious start and decided to give me to programs with different level of volume. I have to go back next Wednesday as I can "hear" the voices but not the background sound. I went to the gym and the background sound didn't affect me, maybe the mapping was very conservative. Not that I'm complaining though. I will have to use my HA for work but I'm planning on using the CI only as soon as I get home and when I go to the gym. I will keep you posted. Exciting times are coming. Kara of Canada, Mary Featherston and Jewel 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
