The Action On Hearing Loss website has not been available for several weeks. I receive their magazine, and there is an article about a young man, who suffered an irreversible auditory nerve failure. He is a classical guitarist, and I know only too well, that music is never going to sound the same anymore, as I have also a severely damaged auditory nerve.
He now has a cochlear implant, and is able to continue playing, although with a very different way of hearing.
Fourteen years ago, I was told I cannot have an implant, because my auditory nerve was damaged.
So what has changed, and if it has, why has the hospital not given me the option.
