Hi I'm back!!

Recommended Posts

Sometime ago I had introduced myself. There has been a long gap!! I know, I know.๐Ÿ˜ฏ. Not said much due to a v long wait.

So , a lot has been going on. I'll try and keep it short.๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜„

Firstly, my consultant died..๐Ÿ˜ฑ

So no appointments ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Inbetween all of this my dad had two strokes.๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

still no appointments ๐Ÿ˜ฑย ๐Ÿฅณ

August 2019. After a v long wait with a help ofย family spanish friends, we managed to get an appointment with the head of the audiology dept.๐ŸŽ‰

(If you think it's a long time it is; by next summer 4 yrs. It is normal but bad as well.ย  Our Spanish family friend Mum had to wait 5 yrs to get a result and hers was not a hearing problem!!๐Ÿ˜ฑ).

No reason for the long wait but the new consultant insisted on having a new cat scan and hearing test. Although admits that I have waited too long. From his point of view all previous assessments were out of date therefore not valid for him to work from...... And all have to be re done by end of October.๐Ÿ˜ค

October. Scan, hearing test done, another appointment for yes or no. ๐Ÿ‘

I'm officially now a CI candidate. Yay!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰

I'll be receiving my implant by next summer..๐Ÿ˜ฌ would love it before then......

I'm on a list, due to the hospital being the only one in Andalusia that will do the op, it's expensive and only once a month. Hence the long wait.๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

One more appointment next week on Monday. Hmm.

I had an appointment which was question and answer type meeting. At that appointment the consultant said that the implant will go in my left ear not my right which the last consultant insisted as I have had a hearing aid in the left.

Difference in opinion...hmm.๐Ÿ˜•

I am puzzled by a comment he made. His reasoning for the implant to be in theย  left ear was that the right ear was too small and that it was dead?!! ๐Ÿ˜ฃ confused??!!

So now trying to get into my head the fact that I will be hearing only in one ear minus the help of a hearing aid in the other.๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

More appointments in the New Year more than likely, unless there's a change of plan!!!๐Ÿ˜€

So there you go. Think I've caught up....๐Ÿ˜œ

Yesterday kind of weird, signed the consent form for the consultant and for the op. We found out while at the desk for the ย waiting list for operations, that it's not likely to be in the summer now, so we're thinking late spring. So for now just a matter of wait and see. Definitely going in the right direction!! Can't wait.๐Ÿ’ƒ
