I thought I’d post an update. It’s been a month since my AB implant has been activated and 2 months since surgery when I had an anesthesia reaction that resulted in SSHL in my non-implanted ear. I will post my new hearing tests sometime next week. My 1 month audi appointment was delayed due to Labor Day.
I could barely understand a few words at activation, but was doing great just hours later. Two days after activation I was hearing on the phone and whizzing through my rehab. I still have problems differentiating between certain letters, like M and N. And I have to do more work to improve hearing with background noise. But overall it’s unbelievable!
I’m truly amazed at how well I can hear, especially with both the AB implant and the Link hearing aid. I love how they work together. It’s definitely been a success.
