Hi all ,
Im toti 29 year Some people know my story earlier here, I lost my hearing suddenly, gradually during 4 months with a normal ear(since April 2020)and I have severe hearing loss in the other ear since childhood.
I have not stopped finding solutions, and I have found only one solution, which is a cochlear implant .
I read people’s experiences here and the feedback was very happy, happy and gave me motivation to move forward.( In particular, the German @Dani is amazing at updating the diary with cochlear implants and how to solve problems and deal with them.
Today was the day for the surgery in the morning, after 12 hours I feel a little relaxed. Looks like I’m walking now. I’m still in the hospital tomorrow. An appointment for examination of the wound, removal of the tape, periodic examination, and a week later an appointment with the surgeon to evaluate the implant and determine the date of activation.
I am a Covid-19 victim. The operation has been delayed a lot since October 2020, but I hope after all this that I will get excellent results.
Glad I am sharing the experience. I spent a lot of time here and learned from the experiences of many cochlear implants. I would like to share the experience of what I have learned and offer a different experience from the rest. I’ll try to focus on the things that a cochlear implant has not dealt with before here.
Lesson # 1: Don’t take a step without learning a lot about cochlear implants, reading a lot of their experiences, and then you decide.
