@Carolmarie I wonder if the reps observe surgeries to learn about the process?  Rest up, hope you're feeling well.

That is terrific!  Did you ask your ins or did Med-El process that for you?

First I ask med-el like I was told but put off hear nothing

then I email my Audi about it and she told the billing Dept and I go and ten days I got the answer

its sad when the rep frommed-el didn’t answer

i guess in Buffalo that how we get answer fast

now until July 6 and I will take pictures of everything will get

have a wonderful day

I saw my surgeon yesterday for follow up

i asked why the med-el was in the surgery with me

he said there are many new staff members at the headquarters and they asked if they could come and see what the surgery was like

no one passed out

i told him I feel like a very new person no more dizziness or poor balance

he explains why my right ear was leaking and he fitted it

i thought it was from the left ear surgery last year

now I am happy

i told him I alway make it a challenge for him and I get my money worth

Med-el was very impressed with him I how he was able to quickly solve any problem during surgery

now with the measles being around there are more deaf children so more implants will be done

@Carolmarie

Very interesting!  Thanks for sharing.

I am so happy that your balance and dizziness has improved.  It is terrific that your surgeon saw that problem and fixed it for you!  It’s like a two-for-one !  Smile.

@Carolmarie It's been since 2019 on this post. I haven't done searches to find your updates, but impressed that you felt like a new person even before activation. How are you doing today?
