pennyriley Posted September 7, 2020 Report Share Posted September 7, 2020 I am nearly 70 and have been severely deaf in my left ear for about 17 years, but because my right functioned well I never explored options to increase hearing. I was also living overseas for the vast majority of that time. Then suddenly this March the hearing in my right ear began fluctuating wildly. Some days I can hear well enough when talking to just one person, other days, it's impossible. Groups are always difficult now even on 'good' days. It has stabilised somewhat now, and I am having a hearing aid fitted for that ear next week. However I am being considered for a CI in the left ear which is functionally useless. Has anyone on this forum had a CI after such a long period of deafness, and if so can you please share your experience. Thank you, Penny Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
