JosephG Posted June 12, 2020 Report Share Posted June 12, 2020 General question for anyone here who has gone CI bilateral. I already have a CI on my left ear, but now my right (dominant) ear has degraded to the point where it still benefits somewhat from a high powered hearing aid (see attached audiometric test over time), but I can't really hear much of anything if it's unaided anymore and I AM a candidate for a CI. So what I'm wondering is for folks who have gone bilateral, when did you make your decision relative to your pure tone audiometry etc.? In other words, I'm trying to figure out whether getting another CI is the better choice for me with my present situation or whether I should invest in another high powered (albeit a bit expensive) hearing aid. My hearing in that right ear has been getting progressively worse over time, so I am anticipating needing a CI at some point regardless, but I'm just wondering when people who have experienced something similar believe the tradeoff in losing the natural hearing to get the CI is worth it.
