Today I began my trek to perhaps try molds. Have not had a new audiogram. Have an excellent HA specialist at Costco. Called him this morning and he wants me to go for a flush to make sure the canals are clean. Easier said than done. CVS wants 99 or $139 for this. Not sure if Hearing has deteriorated too much but I am tired of asking people to repeat and tell them “say again.”
My daughter-in-law work at a Hearing Aid Clinic and she is going to ask one of the PAs how much they would charge for a cleaning. Thinking I will just get some peroxide and do it myself because I never have any visible wax at all when I remove them before I go to bed. She said it is a good idea anyway to have them cleaned periodically.
Reading the posts about molds and noticed there are two kinds, soft and hard shell. Problems with tubes pulling out. That is about all I know about moIds. told my Costco specialist this morning that when I press on the front of my ear in other words closing the canals I hear absolutely perfectly, (for me anyway.) This was enlightening to him cuz he said I am not profound and doesn’t recommend CI’s.
He is a real gem and am so pleased to have him as he seriously cares the best for me.
Any suggestions regarding molds and experiences folks have had would be so appreciated.
Blessed hearing for all, Anita
