Sweet!! I am so looking forward to following your progress :D you're the first person on here to get implanted since I joined.....I am far too lazy to read through the old threads.

So happy for you, best wishes!!

We used to have a lot of people posting their experience here, but it has been very quiet.....not surprising, as if you read many of the old threads, there have been some nasty comments from certain members with an agenda.

wooooooooo! good luck with the surgery!
Thank-you! I always love seeing your avatar as I have 5 African dwarf frogs! I raised 3 of them from eggs, they're 2 months old now :)

Good luck on your evaluation! I just had mine less than a month ago and am already having surgery! I'll pray your process goes equally fast :)

I don't have any frogs anymore :( But I sure enjoyed them when I still had them. Have fun with your froggies though! :)

Now that's just shocking *pretend that's written in the font of sarcasm* but that's a damn shame.

Yes, House Ear is where I had problems. However, they are a great clinic! One of the Audiologists just had it set in her mind that I was faking, no matter how much evidence continued to prove her wrong! The surgeon was great, although we were annoyed that he backed up the audiologist instead of making his own assessment.

I'm sure House Ear will be great for you! Just run away if the Audiologist who comes out to get you is young with straight blonde hair :P

Congrats. I haven't been on here in ages and I noticed the lack of threads with new CI implants.

Hi Alex! Wondering how you are doing and how you are feeling now? My daughter had her surgery the day after you. I don't recall, did you get one or two implants, my little girl got two and is nearly back to herself now. Hope you're feeling just as well as she is, but I'm not sure how different it is at different ages. Are you excited?! We have activation on March 8th, I'm counting down the days :D

My surgery is TODAY Ashley!! I am VERY excited!!! I'm only getting one for now, getting the second in 6-12 months. Getting the right (slightly better) ear done first.
