XaVi Posted August 22, 2018 Report Share Posted August 22, 2018 Hello Everybody. I’m XaVi, I’m 40 years old, and I’m using the Rondo 2 device. 6 years ago, on the 22nd of July 2012, I had an accident with wrong descending doing scuba diving, and I lost around 95 % hearing in my right ear, especially the human voice frequencies. A tinnitus appeared as a consequence with a really high tone permanent affecting also the vestibular channel. Luckily the left ear is 100% health. I was living in Barcelona after the accident, and there was no treatment provided. I just needed to accept the situation. During the last 5 years, I was living with the limitation of feeling permanently the tinnitus (the hearing loss for me was non-significant in my daily routine, I just learned to turn my neck around) I moved to Germany for work. After 2 years here, I was on a Hearing Test because nobody checked me, since I was here. After all tests, they explained I’m really deaf in the right ear and also have an annoying and higher tinnitus. I said “Yes, I know…for 5 years I have been dealing with this” and the doctor answered “I know, but maybe we have a special treatment for you”. Since this day, my life changed on 720 degrees. After 3 months of deep test, I was a candidate for a cochlear implant. On the 14th of February 2018, I had the surgery and since the 14th of March a Rondo was added to my skin/ear/life. After 10 days, I didn’t feel the tinnitus when the device was connected and a sound goes inside. After 5 months and 1 week using Rondo, they provided me with the new Rondo 2, just 2 days ago… https://imgur.com/a/ZxHUOcm XaVi. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
