I’m 51 and have been HOH for about 30 years. Two weeks ago I had an accident at work where I was exposed to loud noise for about 10 minutes and lost about 10-15 more db in the high frequency range. I can’t get into my regular audiologist until later in the week.
I’ve noticed a great deal more recruitment than I ever had in the past. I’m curious if anyone has ever seen recruitment get better over time, especially after an injury?
A second question I have is, does recruitment normally span all of the frequencies sufferinlg loss, or is it typically limited to a narrow range (i.e, at 3Khz, or from 4-6Khz, for example)?
I am hopeful that my audiologist will be able to compensate during my adjustment fitting, but would appreciate any expertise that could provide me with additional insight.
Thanks for any information you might have about this.
