I’ve had my cochlear implant since I was 1 year old- about 20 years now. My magnet, or the area around it, has been causing me some pain lately. Since it’s been hurting a bit tonight, I thought I’d make a post about it to see if any other long-term wearers have dealt with the same thing. I’m also worried that I actually have few pieces of my magnet left in my head, that it’s either slowly broken up in few pieces or something since I have a hard time feeling a whole piece. I’m considering making a call first thing in the morning to my audiologist’s office and seeing if they can fit me in sometime soon to assess the situation properly.
