I don’t have my previous audiogram, but I have had three, each indicating progressive loss. First one was a cookie-bite. Now my audiogram in the right ear and high frequencies is flat as can be at 70db. The left approaches that. Is it possible that my loss may never get much worse than 70db at any frequency? I am 62, and other parts of my body are aging slowly. My father had a hearing loss that HA’s in the 1970’s couldn’t help, which indicates a radical slope.
I asked my audiologist if it would be better to go incognito, or flaunt it. He said incognito would be better for me, and disapproved of my concern about lip-reading skills. Seems like the prognosis is not negative.
Professionals, please advise.
