Please I come to this site for help not sarcasm. I’m female and living in Aus. As I said in the last 10 month the hearing in my R ear has deteriated dramatically. I’m not bored at all, as to this Hybrid Cochlear implant there’s little to no information to be found on the internet. If I go ahead and have an implant that should need to be removed does the implant destroy the little residual hearing I have left?
Do either of you 2 people have Hybrid implants?
Does anyone have any constructive advise please?
In 2014 I discussed a Cochlear implant with my ENT surgeon, he wouldn’t consider it then as the hearing in the R ear was reasonable.
My current up to date audiogram 2 weeks ago the results are
500- 15. 15
750- 25. 35
1000- 35. 50
1500- 95. 100
Bone conduction on L -HFA=55
Bone conduction on R -HFA=45
my speech recognition has gone from 90% 2 years ago to 50% 2 weeks ago.
