Hello, i have severe hearing loss and tinnitus in both ears. I am currently looking to do a cochlear implant in one ear at a time. I have not been able to find anyone talking about the success rate for this as my issue, nor long term abbility . How long can this work for me? what can i expect. everyone tells me that each persons experience is different so it is hard to predict the outcome?? can anyone help me with these answers??
thank you !
God Bless

Hi this is Johnnyb7,

I’m answering myself if anyone was wondering! Lol
I had my IC done in January 2018, I went from 14% hearing words to 93%. 9% to 73% with sentences! I am so greatful!!
The tinnitus actually improved greatly! I only have what I call summer night sounds which is a Blessing for sleeping!!
I could hear words and understand words at my activation. Sounds are still coming along but is improving.
I did have a headache for about two weeks after my activation because now I was hearing so much that I had not heard for years!
I am not depressed my life is so much better!!!
I can not express how greatful I am!
I thank God for giving man the wisdom to make this possible!
