Hello from another Julieo here!
I look forward to hearing what you decide to do about the implant. It's amazing that some of the new tech can be tried prior to surgery. Things keep getting better and better all the time! It has been fascinating to watch the development of cochlear implant technology over the years.
My implant was done in 2005 so it's been a while, but I had friends through HLAA* who had CIs done in the early 80s. Watching them inspired me. My sensorineural bilateral hearing loss was profound at that time but had been diagnosed many years prior when I was a college student.
A research symposium on cochlear implant development was held at the 2022 national HLAA convention last June. It is now posted on the HLAA website. https://www.hearingloss.org/programs-events/hlaa-2023-convention/convention-archives/hlaa-2022-convention/hlaa-2022-convention-research-symposium/
So thankful for my CI and hearing aid which work quite well together.
Good luck to you! Hearing is priceless!!
