Is a norm to need frequent mappings other than regular ones.  Cannot seem to get it right.

What is going on @Marion nancy?  How many months ago were you activated?

My right and left CIs required a different number of MAPpings to get things sounding great.

@Marion nancy

What do you regard as frequent vs regular? I had three mappings the first month of activation and then one mapping monthly thereafter. After this week, I should be going every 6 months but I can understand why someone would want more frequent tweaks than having to wait 6 months.

Going on 4months.  Seems excellent in audio office.  After a week I seem to need more maxed on the fine tuner.  Embarrassing to keep going in weekly

@Marion nancy

Every CI center handles things differently.  My audiologist followed this schedule with me...

Activation (left with 4 programs to work through during the first week...each one louder)

One week later (left with 4 programs to work through over the next month)

one month later

one month later

one month later

(Then I added an extra MAPping several weeks later to tweak things a bit.)

three months later

 

Then we began to have appts for my other side.

Since switchon 3rd march I have had 5 mappings. From third session each improved my hearing. However practice helps. I have listened to 2 audio books and have the radio on all the time. 

If you are not happy, go for another session. Good luck
