yea, and works well for a lot of people. But obviously here a lot of people that have issues with it too. It shouldnt be a "one size fits all" because Its not, Doctors really should do more testing than just a hearing test before implant to try to lessen the chances of bad experiance with implant. I dont know exactly what to do, but do something to weed out people who body might react like mine and travis and not implant. Seriously, I had for 4 years now! I live with this for 4 years! Waste 4 years of my life and my safty and the money!
