bonebridge surgery recovery


Recommended Posts

hi I have just become the 3rd person in Sheffield area to receive Bonebridge implant, left side, to benefit one sided deafness. Surgeon Prof. did a fantastic job, neat scar right behind ear lobe. Very lucky to have this done through NHS. Can't wait for the processor now!Thanks to all the wonderful staff at Royal Hallamshire Hospital

hi again I'm enjoying the samba guinea pig for Sheffield Hallamshire hospital. Been connected for a week now. Magnet no.5, proof I'm a thick skinned Yorkshireman! 4 different settings, universal, music listening, noisy environment and noisy environment with voice tracking. Saw audiologist on Tues to have master volume increased. Workwise (musician/teacher) I've noticed a difference, improved left side awareness and it's improved my singing, I can pitch better with the samba. Not tried it on a gig yet. Going to take some getting used to in social situations though and its still early days yet. Follow up appointment with audiologist in  5 weeks.

p.s. if anyone wants to reply, please post on my 'Bonebridge' thread. Thanks

Hi Ducan, can you write your experiences with the BB? I go to surgery next Thursday... I am SSD all life (I am 25 years).

What are the positive of the BB?

 

Thank you :-)

Hi Susane :)

I am not Duncan but I might help.

Well, people usually describe more saturated sound so it should ease a little bit if you have a struggle listening in a noisy situation.

Unfortunately, you will not get sense of direction because your affected cochlea can not be revived on this way.

It can be, however, with a cochlear implant.

These are 2 different ways of approaching same problem.
