Hi to all here on hearpeers.

Met with my implant manager last week in Boston Medical Center and surgery is set for November 19 @ 6:30 am

Activation is on December 9th

Follow up with all is on December 16th

Somewhat nervous and yet excited to gain some of my life back.

Happy tears!

Thank you all here at hearpeers!!

Everything seems to be going smoothly.

@Lori Martin

Your journey will be unique and I look forward to following it.

Is your CI center a two processor center?  Do you get 2 processors at activation so you have a back up?

Which processors did you choose?

@Lori Martin

Med-El USA has a Sonnet swap program in place currently.  If no one opens your Sonnet processor, you can swap it for a Sonnet 2 processor when Med-El releases the Sonnet 2 (supposed to happen soon).  I will post a link for you.  Several members here were activated with Rondo 2 and have kept their Sonnet unopened so they can swap for a Sonnet 2.

 

Exciting!
