i’m new to h/a’s but not new to hearing problems. brief history, the last 15 yrs have had tubes in both ears due to what they call glue ear. late 2005 left drum broke open from the tube, ended up with a tamnyoplasty/radical mastoidectomy(excuse spelling). late 06 had the reconstruction surgery, ended up with never damage, left ear never came up to normal range unless i have on head phones loud. so two weeks ago the otonurotologist said to get a aid.
my questions are.
- anyone else experience this?
- whats a good aid for this type of problem?
3.the dr. said to try open, but talked to the audi on the phone re this and was told ussaly the open do not work with my prob. my appt is 3 weeks from now. i just want to go in well informend.
anyone with my kinda prob useing open fit?
4.my ins. does give me 40% off the cost and a 800.00
allowance toward a aid/aids if i use newport audiology.
is this place decent???
i’ll have more questions i’m sure but for now thats all.
thx in advance…walt
