Jun 23, 2019 · How does hearing loss change you? in Hearing Loss

It’s true that hearing aids are amplifiers but there are programs for different environments as well as adjustments that can be made within the programs. My Resound aids have noise filter and speech clarification, which I find extremely helpful. I just tell people I am adjusting my hearing aids when I have my smartphone out during conversations. My friends are used to it.

I am new to this mm thread but joined Connect this year because of my hearing loss. It was a bonus to find this after I got the sudden news from my brother that he has full blown mm. Total surprise to him.

Thanks so much for giving me an idea of what’s ahead. When I spoke with him last week, the chemo was going going to start soon. It’s a bit overwhelming as I’m sure you know. They are still pursuing a specialist. I do not know what the bone marrow numbers are just that they are going ahead. He had an MRI some years ago for something else. It showed 3 spots on his spine that they think are from mm. The red flag was a kidney stone that was removed recently. They followed up with a blood test and then the bone marrow biopsy. All that has been going on over the last few weeks.
I hope all continues well with you and the stem cell treatment happens. My brother was told that will be in his future.

May 8, 2019 · Loss of hearing clarity: Solutions or strategies anyone? in Hearing Loss

Thank you for the helpful advice. I did not need to push the issue with my workplace. They would have purchased a new phone system if I had found a compatible one. Since I just retired 8 months ago, I am just looking for a good home phone. I love to hear all these ideas and solutions. I do not live near any major cities. I’m in rural Michigan. I think Grand Rapids may be the closest chapter. All this is helpful knowledge to have next time I see my audiologist. So much easier to advocate when I know what I’m talking about I’ve learned quite a bit since joining the group this year.

My iphone has a mic setting that would work well for board meetings. I could activate it and put it in the middle of the table. The bluetooth would send sound directly to my Resound ha. I haven’t used it yet but have heard from several people it is very effective.

Thanks. That might work for home. Unfortunately, the work phone was a multiple handset system. The base was nowhere near my desk and the portable I used did not have a jack. My boss is beginning to have a hearing loss, so they may be looking for new phone system in the future.

Does anyone know of a list of recommended handsets that are good for t-coil use? I struggled at my job (retired) as a receptionist trying to understand clients on the office phone. It was listed as ha compatible but I only got a buzz when I turned on my t-coil. I have purchased and returned several handsets at home with the same problem.
I do use an i-phone with my bluetooth compatible Resound hearing aids. That is fantastic and has made phone conversations possible. Unfortunately, I live in an area with poor cell service, some days no connection. A landline is still needed. So my search for a handset continues.

His initial doctor wants him to start chemotherapy immediately. He is currently looking for a specialist in the Spokane area but may have to go to Seattle.
