I really enjoyed this installment of your series! It brought tears to my own eyes remembering those special first days of new (old!) sounds.

Great video.  It’s so cool that you are experiencing the frequency band electrode selection based on how your array is positioned in your unique cochlea! The cool anatomy based fitting using OTOPLAN.

Which electrode array do you have?

The Flex 28, and we know via the CT scan that it reaches perfectly to he apex of the cochlea.

My left side is flex 28 and I have had X-ray and CT imaging so we know it is in a great position too.  I wish all CI surgeons used imaging post insertion.

Are you still adjusting the frequency bands assigned to each electrode or are you liking the way things are set now?

Still playing around with levels mostly, a few minor changes in the EAS, I play around with electrode 3 on or off at times, My next MAPping is on May 6th.
so far 250hz is being a bit if a nuisance, inconstantly. but I'm positive its my cochlea not the array.  I sit at home and run sweeps and tests tones, basically being a royal pain when I walk in to my audiologists LOL..

It takes awhile for our brains to sort out all the info from our CIs.  Good luck.
