I returned to work today.  It wasn't too bad, but I've gotten used to resting and laying around to heal that I was longing to do that.  Now staying busy with work and finish preparing for my high school reunion this Saturday.

Hello All:   I have to say that I am so glad that I had the Cochlear Implant surgery!  For years (7 years to be exact), my doctor constantly asked me if I would consider the cochlear implant.  He al

Thanks!  It's exciting.  Finding a place to live is the stressful part right now, but I believe we will find something definite soon. :-)

Thanks.  We are still searching for a place to live and have been stressed with the searching issue for a bit, but we did take a side trip this weekend while we were searching to be able to have some fun.  That helps, but we can't keep making trips to look for a place to live, so hopefully we will be able to find/settle on something real soon.

Thanks!  We were first looking to purchase our very first home.  However, with time running out, we are considering renting for about 6 months as we search for a home. :-)  As of right now (that is, unless they changed the date I am supposed to start my new position), I have 1.5 months before I start my new position.

Thanks.  It went well.  Voices, for the most part, only sounded like a robot for a few minutes.  Right now I am experiencing echo.  I think I may have experienced this when I was first activated in my right ear last year. Hopefully the echo will go away soon.  :-)  Oh, and right now the tinnitus is active right now, but that may be due to the first day wearing the device. :-)

Great - are you listening bilateral or already started to train newly implanted ear?

Thanks!  I'm wearing my processor every day.  Right now, I'm experiencing a lot of sounds in the background - actually sounds similar to wearing a hearing aid and the ear mold of the hearing aid is not all the way in the ear - squealing kind of...and bells sounding at times - especially when water or the air conditioner is on.  Although I don't remember experiencing this after my first activation, I am thinking it is just part of getting used to and adjusting to wearing and hearing with the implant.  I am looking forward to improving hearing and all the WOW! moments along the journey. :-)  I'm not complaining.

My second CI started like marimba and whale songs so I can relate! Stay the course. Our brains just need a chance to catch up.

It is definitely worth it! I returned to playing the piano this week after decades of no piano due to my hearing loss. It is sooo worth it!

Your Wow moment!  :-)  It's wonderful you are able to return to playing the piano. Maybe the squealing and static will die down and disappear within the next couple of weeks since I am wearing it every single day.

 

In fact, I had a co-worker so confused and freaked out today - it was so hilarious.  You see, as I was walking down the hall, I saw him and so I started lifting the processors off my head back and forth (one side first then the other).  It freaked him out!  He said "Why is it doing that?"  He thought there was some type of string attaching the devices that went across the inside of my head (like tug-of-war). lol.  I tried showing him, but it freaked him out!  Then I told him to take and remove one of my processors from my head - he said "no" and started walking away scared.  I then took off one of my processor and showed him the magnet inside.  I then explained to him that I have a magnet inside my head on either side of my head.  I am serious I was cracking up with laughter!
