Monday, I had to turn in the new hearing aids. I purchased one and it has been sent in to Siemens to get the body changed and stuff. The other one will wait (depending on if I get the CI or not) If I don’t, then I will purchase one over the summer.
I am sooooooooooooooooooo frustrated with my old ones, even though one has been repaired. I know that there are sounds I’m not hearing, that I have heard with the new hearing aids. I have been frustrated not being able to hear what I had been hearing with the new hearing aids.
Yes, I’m still scared of the CI, but I think it will be great. Now I’m debating whether to get one or two CIs. The issue isn’t going to be with hearing…I’m going to hear more sounds than before…the issue is going to be speech comprehension. There’s no guarantee, but all the audiologists think I will do well with it.
