    Does anyone keep "old" c.i. component boxes or should i toss them?

    I had the implant @3 years ago but kept the boxes for all the returns. They're all labeled (by me) w/a date and what the issue was. Is there any valid reason for me to hang on to empty boxes for cables, processors, clips, you name it I've probably returned it. I may have needed the boxes for...

    CI on head ?

    I'm currently unable to get a response from the fellow who did the surgery for my implant. Perhaps someone knows what's happening. I don't have local CI experts. When the implant was done, it protrudes on my mastoid. There's also a movable "tube-like" thing that runs directly to the back of...
