Custom made your own design? did you order online? I didn't know what the best info to put on it but Addenbrooke's number is a good idea

Dr Gray is very good, he did my perforated ear drum repair before they could do the cochlear implant because any water or infection can damaged the implant, you're in good handsWink

My audiologist recommended I get one. I probably will, though I want to find something the is somewhat fashionable before I do. :)

I used a medic alert bracelet for a few years but recently went with aroad id bracelet as it is much easier to put on and take off is cheaper and you can store more medical information online.

@Kylie I did order one after my first CI but haven't been wearing it.  Everything I've learned says that the Synchrony implant just isn't a concern with MRIs.
