I need to make another appointment at Costco, so right now all I have is a bad print out of my audio-gram. I have 2 RIC Phonak Brio R 312’s. My Costco rep gave me a few different domes to try to see if I liked any of them. I have been desperate to get a solution, so yesterday, I tried the smallest sized closed dome. I didn’t want to scream, so it was an improvement from when I tried before. Maybe I am getting more used to hearing aids in general, but they kept slipping out. Today, I tried the mid-sized closed dome, and I noticed that I had far fewer incidences of feedback. However, I get massive feedback from music and water. It can also happen in louder situations, which is what teaching jr. high is. Loud. Anyway, I did notice less feedback today than before at school. I know I have to go in to have her reset everything for the closed domes, but I’m thinking maybe I should try the large closed domes tomorrow and see if I can handle it.
I think my problem is I have to have the high’s up louder, since I have loss in that range. It seems to set things into feedback. I am only at 90% volume right now, and I have to turn it down one otherwise I get feedback from everything. My mom laughing set it off.
I also still have problems with understanding my students. I saw on another thread that someone said that is “speech in speech noise.” I think when we have previously been adjusting things we just changed speech in noise. Does anyone know anything about this?
