I really think my problem is a size issue. The first time they went in, at the fitting, it was a struggle but my ears were sensitive from all her poking.
I have a high pain threshold and am not a quitter so forged on. The first week, I just concentrated on adjusting to the new volume and sounds. I over came the headache issue, previously posted about.
When I first got my Rextons 8 years ago, I wore them long hours from the start. They were my first aids and in a month I didn’t know I had them.
This time, I am constantly aware of them, which I don’t like, at all. It’s been like going from a thimble to a sand bucket.
The past 7 days the only way I could comfortably put them in was by putting baby oil in the canal. At 4 hours my ears were sore enough to repeat the lube job and stretch it to 8 hours.
Yesterday (Wed.) I became concerned that my ears might be inflamed and my next check up, on Monday, might be less than ideal. So, yesterday and today, I just removed them at 4 hours and will now go with my old ones until Monday.
I do believe, if we can get domes right I will be ok.
