Hello everyone. I am very new to this journey. Sudden right side hearing loss Aug 2020 and implanted June 11, 2021. I will be activated July 9 and will be using the Rondo3. Married mom of 4, grandma of 6 soon to be 7 YIPPEE!! Learning a lot of new things and hopefully in the future will be able to help others with their journey.

Thank you so much. I am so excited and impatient for the activation. I am sure I will have many questions. Right now, I am going with the flow and doing lots of reading information while off work. I am finding answers to questions I didn't know I had lol.

Haha I remember that too! Getting answers on this forum to questions I'd not considered but were actually quite important!

Hey Wendy & HG - 

W - great news for you !  Looks like they are really getting a lot of us sorted out with our hearing struggles right now.  
Hope its an easy trip home on whichever highway takes you there, with the added cottage traffic and the new nav system ;)!

for HG - congratulations as well !  My activation date is the same as your surgery date!  It is amazing to see the surge of surgeries and activations!

I think it went great! I heard the usual robotic noises when first turned on. Over the weekend, I went online and found read along audio books and today, 3 days later the sounds are making a bit more sense. I go back Thursday for mapping.

Wow @Wendy Willard! Nice to meet a fellow Ontarian. Yes I would like to hear how you’re doing since activation? This group is the most amazing place to get support and answer questions you may have.

Hi, Kara, from Ontario. I am doing great!!! I ended up receiving an AB implant, so I dropped off the radar of HearPeers.  I am still in awe at how my hearing has re-established in my implanted ear. I now consider it my "good" ear, and for good reason.

Just today as my hubby and I were enjoying the last rays of summer on our cottage deck, I said to him "I hardly ever say pardon to you, anymore, eh?" To which he replied "Pardon?" I thought he was just kidding around, but he wasn't. Since my hearing has improved so much, I am talking more softly, whereas I used to bellow at everyone! Now he's having trouble hearing me, and his hearing is normal 😅
