My Cochlear Implant - a journal

Hello All:

Mayo Clinic recently released a Youtube video about Cochlear Implants (CI). I found it very interesting and wanted to share it with this group. The video (only about 10 minutes long) talks about who can benefit most from a CI and what the surgery is like. What I found most interesting was that this procedure is most helpful for people who have a hard time hearing when there is background noise.

For those of you who have had this surgery, will you let us know if your experience was similar to what is discussed in this video?

That was very interesting. The discussion of ‘real world functioning’ is a mirror of my experience with the testing and the surgeon. Thank goodness the criteria have expanded to include more of us who are having trouble functioning and have problems with recruitment.
