    Decision is Made

    PM means private message. click on my name and choose to send me a private message. I think Cochlear is currently in a recall. I have no info on MedEl. I talked an expert on CI's and basically he said that the recalls are the result of leakage... not leaking into the body, but the body...

    Decision is Made

    CreatedNat, I have the AB CI right now. so I am talking from that experience. Each of the three companies (AB, Cochlear, MedEl) have advantages and disadvantages. MedEl is a lot more prevalent in Europe where they are the number one Implanted device. AB is the top in the U.S. MedEl's only...

    Does CI affect some nerves?

    Stress can add complications to any surgery. stress on the body can produce weird things. It can even uncover issues that might be hiding in the background.

    Does CI affect some nerves?

    No liquids don't like to stay on one side. I can usually keep solids to one side for a while. But once some of it moves over or saliva starts in, I get the powerful metallic taste again. Also my jaw gets tired of chewing on only one side all the time. Every person has a different...

    Hard of hearing, need advice

    Since you have an open door policy, you can have a little fun with it. Every time an employee comes in to speak with you, thank them loudly for stopping by and to please close the door. Have your little meeting and when they walk out loudly tell them to send in the next one. Then smile and go...

    teaching myself to sign...<3

    Wirelessly posted (Backberry) I've known some deaf that are dyslix. They only had an issue with english not ASL. I suspect it may be similar for you (to Lyn). I say go for it and remain open to new ideas and ways of being. Joining the deaf is like going to another country with a different...

    HA or CI Phone

    Wirelessly posted (Backberry) I've had mixed results. Best was with a land line phone and a head set while using both CI and HA... Now no longer use a HA so its more challenging on the phone. I only use a cell phone with a few people I know I can understand.
