Lucia........do you have a progressive loss? Were you able to hear well (ie some speech) with hearing aids when you had them?
I'd definitly go for it..........CIs are supposed to be very very very good for those with progressive loss.
And yeah, you'll only get one CI for now, if you're depending on public funding. There's very little evidence that a second CI really improves things all that much (basicly just localizing sound and better hearing in noise)
Well I don't think the high frequency transponder will work for me. I think my loss was progressive, because I was wearing hearing aids up until I was 10 years old.
