Screech Posted September 12, 2021 Report Share Posted September 12, 2021 I was implanted on 8/4/21 and turned on 8/20/21. Wow! Was I turned on!! I am one of the lucky ones. I could hear and understand from the get go. My hearing has allowed me to expand my horizons by use of music with a new guitar (which I cannot play) and a karaoke machine which I can use, but with an almost 80 year old voice! My large family is very supportive. On my second meeting with my Audiologist, she gave me new programs and volume levels. Whoa, howdy! My hearing was so clear it was amazing! One major problem!! Along with the new hearing level came a loud screech, especially from tv conversations. It is very aggravating! I am trying to live with it but it is frustrating. My wife, Jill, who is a wonderful support and help, reminds me often that I am so lucky to hear like I do from the first minute of turn on. The screeching continues into my fourth week after turn on. Have any of you out there in HearPeer land experienced this loud screeching? Happy to be joining. Look forward to communication with other Med El implant users.
