I am new here and am looking forward to the support…
I just got a CI implant on July 23rd and was activated a few weeks ago. Yesterday I had my first mapping ~ what a difference between the first and second audio appointments! I am 51 years old, my hearing was never an issue until the past 10 years and it has been a fast decline. I have bad tinnitus. Been wearing hearing aids and have been missing a lot in conversations.
I was super dizzy right after the surgery, which was to be expected. How long should the dizziness last? I no longer am dizzy all the time, but when I lean over and stand up I am. Does this sound normal? I don’t want to bug the surgeon if it just takes time. I assume it varies from person to person.
Are there some exercises to regain balance/stability?
Thanks in advance,
