Lynn Agnes Posted February 19, 2019 Report Share Posted February 19, 2019 I had sudden onset of single sided deafness three and a half years ago in my left ear. It was diagnosed as sensorineuro hearing loss. My right ear has normal hearing but has had one recent surgery to remove inflammatory tissue from my middle ear. Since the onset of hearing loss, I have had great difficulty localizing sound and also hearing in noisy environments. I am hoping that the cochlear implant will help me with these. Localizing sound is a safety issue for me as I do a lot of walking and bicycling in the community. I would love to hear from others with single sided deafness with normal hearing in one ear. I am wondering if anyone in my situation experienced music differently after the CI was in place. My insurance recently approved the cochlear implant and so I need to make a final decision in the next few weeks. One of my biggest fears is not being able to appreciate music as well after the surgery. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
