The great news was; after dropping an average of 10 decibels a year the last two years. It was almost identical as last year. The SRT went up and few decibels but the SNR loss unaided improved a few decibels across the board. My WR scores improved 8% and 4%. This I found strange because I went in with a complaint of finding it harder to hear with background noise.
The dr in all was very pleased. She did say tiredness etc can effect your hearing test and maybe last years was just an off day, or in fact my hearing has gotten a bit better when it comes to WR scores. Either was I was happy.
Being 40yr old and having had a reasonably quick onset loss (3 years from 30 down to 50ish decibel loss - I was very nervous going to appointment.
When I asked about my trouble in noisier Envoiraments, she said she gave me more gain (why when test chart was the same I’m not sure?) but it has helped a great deal.
Altogether very happy but just a little confused. Last year they mentioned maybe lip reading classes (freaked me out!!!) and now my WR scores are on the rise!!!
Has anyone had something similar. If so, did it stay even over the next few years or should I expect loss to fall off again?
Thanks in advance.
