Aug 7, 2018 · Cochlear Implants in Hearing Loss

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!

Marygrace,

That is very interesting that you mention about the physical strain and a daily aspirin!
When I wake in the morning things are quiet. Then if I yon and stretch hard the noise starts.
I too take aspirin and ibuprofen, how did you fine this out? I am taking a natural supplement and it has taken my noise to half the noise level.
I have severe hearing loss in both ears and I am a candidate for the Cochlest implant and will be proseeding with the process. Does your husband have an implant?
I was told in the past the reason I have the ringing is due to the nerve damage.
I’m trying to fine someone with my same condition to see how successful the implant is working. And for how long.

Thank you,
Johnnyb7

Dennis,
Ok, I wasn’t sure.
Can you sing to the music and hear yourself to stay on key?

Thank you!

Dennis,

Thank you! That was very helpful and encouraging! I am hoping the implant will help cover some or most of the noises caused by tinnitus. How does music sound to you with your cochlear implant ?

Best Regards,

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

Tinnitus I have experienced the same issue in both ears. It has woken me up at night and could got back to sleep. One day I was praying about this cause I felt I couldn’t take it anymore. I started looking on line to see if their was anything that could help me!
I found s product called quite mind, some people say it’s a fraud , but I was desperate and tried it . It’s been 1 and 1/2 months and my noise level is half as loud as it was … i can focus on hearing again.
To me it was a God sent product!
It is a vitamin and herb produce. But always check with your Dr. before using .
