I answered this question but in a different thread so I'll again here... at my age no but I might look into it, if I was was young probably, something to consider is unintended consequences, ie. well meaning people put a well in a village so the young girls didn't have to go to the river to fetch water, great right, not really now they no longer had that time to socialize, and you know how important that is for young girls, the time saved was used to increase their chores :hyper: :grouphug::(

Let's say that doctors had invented a cure for hearing loss. :hmm: like a pill, once you swallow it, you'll have 100% normal hearing, no deafness anymore. Would you take it if it was such a thing?

As for me, I wouldn't take it. Yeah, being moderately-to-severely HOH in one ear and fully deaf in the other ear isn't easy. It's a struggle sometimes. But overall I like it. It's my life. So nope. :lol:#deafpower :deaf:

What about you guys? :D
I wouldn’t take it. I’ve been deaf or hard of hearing all my life (I have progressive hearing loss) and after being profoundly Deaf for over half my life I love my cochlear implant because I can hear or be Deaf in a second.

the cure wouldn't come in pill form anyways...

question in post #1 needs to be phrased better.

read that there was some ground breaking work on repairing the ear canal with new hair which would allow people to hear. this involves operating on your ear!

that said... i would like to hear but would I go thru such an operation? That I don't know.

man I’d take it seriously if they invented a cure for it this is a heaven for me . because I’m struggling to adapt any conversation with random people in meetings , conferences, listen what people talk without even watching lips , quick speeches lol these are my biggest drawbacks I faced since I first wore a digital hearing aid back in 5years and realised I needed to work more to improve these listening skills to become like a normal human :(

I was born with moderate to severe hearing loss and the dumbest thing I faced was tinnitus I didn’t know what tinnitus is like I got to know it after I wore a HA noticed a strange feeling in the ears
