I would for sure. I have to ask the surgeon. Not sure if it's an option. Since the in the cochlea on the left has reduced fluid and scar tissue around it and the balance nerve also on that side has full function. The balance nerve on the right has little to no function. Caused by the meningitis. So I haven't mentioned it yet.

I had a Labrynthectomy about 2 years before having the CI surgery in that ear. a Labrynthectomy is when they remove the semicircular canals ( your vestibular/balance center) from that ear. This did not prevent me from getting a CI. Medel also has different type electrode arrays in case of otosclerosis. This is a malformation of the cochlea. I would discuss with your audiologist and surgeon about the possibility as they know your hearing and medical health the best and can answer any questions you might have. Let us know how things are going

Wow Adam you had your semi circular canals removed? Wow. How is your balance? I have to watch my balance i twisted my ankle really bad about three weeks before surgery. ( because I wasn't paying attention. )

My balance is fine. I practice martial arts as well as run ultramarathons and don't have any issues. Every once in a while I will lose a little balance if footing is bad.

When they remove your vestibular system, your brain realizes that it is gone and takes over and compensates for the loss. It took a few months after the surgery for me to feel normal and be able to walk ok. No more vertigo. Now I don't even think about it.

I am so thankful for the central compensation abilities of the brain! I also balance just fine even though my right had a transcanal labrynthectomy 24 years ago. Many things to be grateful for indeed!
