Hello Lisa,

 

welcome to the group - can you explain us, what kind of implants because Med-El have various types of implants and it's not same whether we're talking about cochlear or middle ear or bone conduction implant.

 

Also can you explain us - where his headache starts? Does he has/had migraines or neck issues until now?

 

Bye!

Lisa,

I am not a doctor and do not feel comfortable giving medical advice. Your best bet would be to follow up with your surgeon and Audi. There could be many reasons for the headaches. I know it has been a little while since you have posted. Have the headaches eased up any?

Adam - in your country Audi's are not doctors, and surgeons are concretely efficient but do not bother a lot about creative pathophysiologic process as taking good old patient history and building a real hypothesis.

"- No, it's not possible - go to your GP's!"  :P  ^_^

I am curious if your son's headaches started right after implantation or is this something that started years later?  My daughter also has a medel implant and has been having "migraines"  that affect her CI for the last 6 years, when she was fine for the 10 years before that.

Ivana just a leg up! Here in Canada and US we don't go see our surgeons after surgery and everything is healed up. We only see the audiologist who will them if necessary will consult the surgeon as they work as a team here. So if I was to have a major issue the Audi would make me an appointment to see the surgeon.

I am in the US and I have annual exams by my CI surgeon.

I guess it depends on the doctor. I haven't seen my surgeon since the initial follow up after surgery. 

The only time I am to contact him is if I am having some sort of trouble

Ivana, I am pretty lucky to have the surgeon I have. He actually does take in the whole picture with me in trying to figure out his next move if any with the many inner ear issues I have had. I have been blessed with a good one

In Canada you can make appointments to see a specialist within 6 months if you have seen the doctor before, outside of that you will need a referral. At least, thats how it works in my province.

Yes we have a one year window for that here in Ontario. But I have the benefit of seeing my Audi whenever I need to.
