“I just had to bleed my radiator as it wasn’t getting hot. I heard the water escaping from the radiator in my right ear with my hearing aid. Before my surgery, I could not hear it.”
That reminds me of the very first time I put in a hearing aid. In my late 40s, hearing had been bad for years… finally went in, had the exam and ordered one hearing aid - all I could afford at the time. When I went back to the audiologists a couple weeks later after the molded CIC came in, he explained it to me, showed me how to put in and out the battery, then gently put it in my ear.
WOW! He and my girlfriend at the time could speak normally & I could hear them fantastically well. However, having nothing to base it on, I just assumed the “white noise” I also was hearing was the price one paid for having an amplifier in your ear.
I mentioned it to the audiologist, who was crestfallen. He asked me a few more questions about the “white noise”, then walked across his office and turned off the fan sitting on his filing cabinet.
NO MORE WHITE NOISE!! I was hearing a stupid fan for the first time in god knows how long…
They were laughing their butts off at the look on my face.
