That is great news that the Meniere's is in remission lets hope it stays that way for many years to come. I also think your doing the right thing by holding off with the CI surgery when the hearing aids are still giving you some hearing as you know its major surgery. For myself I have adjusted well to being totally deaf over the year and learnt how to read lips and thats an on going thing. Going deaf is not the end of the world and rally not all that bad it could be worse as your hearing slowly goes you know and need to prepare your self for the deaf world. Learn sign language and how to lipread are very imprortant steps to make if there available in your area as they are not here for me. Another thing to consider is a Hearing Ear Dog you can apply for 1 or even train your own there are books to help with that and get your dog certified.
Anyhow, all the best to you and take care
Thanks for asking about me. I have just been busy and got out of the habit of checking in.
My Meniere's really doesn't bother me much any more. Glad to hear that things are moving forward on your implant. I was tested in November and approved for CI's but I chose to wait until my HA's do not offer me any benefit at all. I was a borderline case and my hubby works for Siemen's so I was able to get two Siemens aids for next to nothing. The technology was a huge improvement over my previous aid, so I decided to wait.
Currently, I am in training to be a Hearing Aid Specialist with Sonus here in FL.
Congratulations on your Hearing Ear dog. I think that is wonderful. That has always been an area of great interest for me for obvious reasons. I have even helped local deaf people get on the wait list for a Hearing ear dog in FL.
Anyway, take care and I hope that waiting list is short.
Hello its been a while since I have seen you on and I just wondered how your Meniere's symptoms where. I do hope your living a dizzy free life these days more than I can say for myself but life does go on. I thought I would let you know I am on the surgical waiting list here in Ontario for my MED-EL implant. But for the meen time I have received a Hearing Ear Dog to help me out and make my life safer. Well you take care and I hope to hear from you soon Don
