Thanks for the information and encouragement!
I need to look into BAHA and find out what it is; if it is different from a bone-conduction type aid.
My loss is complete on one side, significant on the other (but I don’t have the audiogram right here, to try and quantify it). Had stapes surgery bilaterally for otoscherosis, one side worked ok (not that great anymore, it was 20 years ago); the other side went totally dead (Dr. told me the wire slipped and “killed” the cochlea).
I will post observations once I get the new rig, but am in early stages of exploration right now. The cost is significant and the learning curve, getting used to a new aid, is daunting.
Thanks again, I will be checking back in (reading) regularly.
