I will be receiving my first Cochlear implant at the end of December.  I have been hard of hearing since I was 3 years years. I am 46 years old now. I have been wearing hearing aids in both years for the last 17 years.  What is it like to have cochlear implants?

Hi @steph and welcome to HearPeers!

Wishing you the best on your CI journey.  The end of December will be here in no time!  Which processor did you choose?

 

What is it like to have cochlear implants?  It is beyond fabulous!

Here is a link to a captioned video where I share my journey in case you are interested.

Hi @steph 

Welcome to the group!! I'm also scheduled the end of December to get my 2nd CI on Monday 12/21 :) Mary Beth is spot on when she says cochlear implants are life changing!!!! I could not imagine my life without it now. I know I would not be able to work in apparel product development without it. My one CI has improved my quality of life tremendously. Everything from speaking to listening to music to hearing the rain sound wonderful to me. Best wishes on your journey and ask us any other questions you have!

 

@Mary Beth LOVED your video. Well said!

@steph

That varies from person to person.  Aural rehab helped me a lot.  There are a lot of great ideas in our REHAB topic.

 

Do you have Sonnet 2 or Rondo 3?
