melchang Posted October 7, 2014 Report Share Posted October 7, 2014 Hi, I had Med-El EAS unilateral cochlear implant last Thursday morning. Everything was okay in the first night post surgery, even I could tell my residual hearing was preserved. I lifted my dog (17lbs), ate heavy food, and listened to music with one earpiece in my unimplanted ear. However, something was wrong last Friday night. After tinnitus occurred for couple of minutes, I felt dizziness, and air pressure or fullness in my implanted ear. The vertigo gets worse when I lie down or raise my head. I feel dizzy and nauseous when walking my dog longer than 15 minutes. The air pressure in my implanted ear is never gone, sometimes affects hearing ability of my unimplanted ear. Just want to know if this symptoms are normal in cochlear implant post surgery or not? Thanks, Mel Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
