Stuman51 Posted August 21, 2018 Report Share Posted August 21, 2018 After completely losing my hearing over a 6-hour span in late June of 2017, my Sonnet implant was activated January 3 of this year. It has been a HUGE blessing. As well as a source of much frustration. I will try to explain the issues as concisely as I can. When I started, I showed improvement on hearing and comprehension week after week. But at some point I reached a plateau and my hearing and comprehension actually begin to decline. So I went to my audiologist, she made some tweaks, and my hearing improved. Then, a few weeks later, I plateau and it starts to decline again. So I go back for more tweaks, during which I show improvement for a few weeks before beginning to decline again. The first time this happened, I was mailed a new processor and I mailed my original one back. My latest visit to my audiologist was this past Wednesday. By Saturday I had asked people to repeat themselves more than I had in the past 2 months. It's incredibly frustrating. At one point in this journey, and the time that I heard the clearest, was using the Roger pen with a MyLink telecoil loop around my neck. The hearing was so crystal clear. Now, even when I use that I am having difficulty with comprehension and understanding. Is this normal at 7 months? Is there anything more I should be doing? I'm open to ANY & ALL suggestions. Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
