I'll getting implanted in my left ear on November 11. In the meantime my hearing has dropped completely in my right ear. Would it be a better decision to also start process for implant in my second ear, or should I wait for few months/years to get my second ear implanted?

Can somebody share their experience with second implants?

 

Thank you for your suggestions

Wishing you the best on Nov 11th!

Your CI team will guide you.  Typically it is easier to have less time between sides.  6-8 months is rather common.  Some adults get both sides done in one surgery.  Some adults wait longer.

@SWS0107I'm not bilaterally implanted but my surgeon is the one who decided which ear to do first. Originally he wanted to do the worst ear but at my preop appointment he switched to the better ear.
