May, June, July, August 2019 CI surgery and/or activation

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone 

Just wanted to update you all. I had my surgery yesterday morning for my CI and thank God everything went smoothly and no major side affects from the surgery . I will be activated on 7/30/19 which I think is a bit far off but I guess I just have to wait it out. For those who have a CI surgery coming up don’t worry about a thing. Yesterday was my first surgery and first time going under general anesthesia. I will tell you it’s ok to be nervous and have a little anxiety. But Once you get back in the OR relax and breath you will only remember being in the OR no more than 5 minutes and you will be waking up in the recovery room seriously it’s that fast lol. I got on the OR table waiting for the meds to calm me down and I remember saying man this stuff ain’t working, the next thing I know I was in recovery with my sister and son waking me up. There is no drifting off to sleep that’s the funny part about it but it’s nothing to worry about honestly.

@mopakarim

It seems like I have accidentally missed you in the list.  Are you have surgery or activation tomorrow?  Cochlear implant, SoundBridge or BoneBridge?

Wishing you the best!

I had to wait 5 weeks both CIs. I thought that was ridiculously long. But I survived!

Hello Everyone, well I am one week post implant and doing very well.   Had my staples out 2 days ago that was no problem I thought would be ouchy it was not at all. Jaw is a bit sore still and I chew carefully while eating.I get the occasional stab of pain in my implant ear nothing I can't stand. I assume that is the healing process of the nerves etc. 

 

Hope everyone else is doing well also..

Yes, that's the fun part.  Be cautiously optimistic at activation - I could barely hear words, it was very beepy and odd-sounding but it starts integrating pretty quickly.

Yes I have read so many replies from lovely people saying to be patient and not have to many expectations when they hook me up.    If I am one the lucky ones great but I doubt it, so I'll be ready for beeps and weird noises 🙂  .

@Sandy123

For those many of us who start our journey with static, beeps, etc ....  the journey to speech & beyond gives us a new appreciation of the plasticity of our brains.  It is an incredible journey.

 

I am glad your recovery is going well.  The exciting part starts soon!

I’m having problems because the implanted ear is my original Meniere’s ear.  I have high hopes that this is temporary.

I’m doing better.  I had a Meniere’s attack.  I took steroids by IV at the hospital.  Now I have steroid pills to take and tapper off.  I’m now able to eat but I’m still wobbly on my feet from my inner ear on the left being messed up.  I’m better on my feet than yesterday, so the steroids are working.  I have to wait until Monday to get an activation appointment.

My activation will be 10 July.  I missed my 28 June activation, which was probably too soon after surgery anyway, because I was too ill with a Meniere’s attack.  I’m much better now.  I still have a balance problem.  However, nausea and vertigo are gone and I can now eat and take meds.  I’m using steroids to get the inflammation down.  Hopefully, that will fix the balance problem soon.  I want to get back to my regular traditional yoga practice.  I think I can still do chair yoga at this time.  I teach that.   I’m looking for more natural remedies to help with this.  I’m going to try meditation and breathing exercises.  I have some essential oils on hand.  Any ideas from this group in getting Meniere’s to subside are welcome.
