Hi Megs, my daughter is only 27 and was born deaf in her right ear and 2 weeks before xmas 09 she woke up deaf in her left ear. I hope that we will get precious information and friendships from this site also. She is still working through the shock and trauma of this happening to her at the moment.....and so am I. We dont know why this has happened to her. Her MRI was normal and there doesnt seem to be any obvious reason.
I wonder in time can anyone tell us with an implant how good the hearing will eventually become? Does it ever get past one on one conversation? Do implants, eventually with time and patience, give you the ability to go to a restaurant and talk with everyone at the table? etc. etc...
Anyway......nice to meet you.
