Does my Cochlear Implant work well?


A week or perhaps two my speech processor used to work well without anything negative to report.. I had the coil changed and it worked great. However a few days ago, it started again to have little failure problems...

I took a closer look and saw that this little outside part is a bit "broken", how do you say? Have a look at the photo! This is what I mean? Can you see!

I guess this is the reason what makes the strange "blackouts" happen again. It's a bit odd but at least I know what's the matter. I'll have to wait until my audiologist comes back from vacation then I'll stop by to tell him about.

This is however not such a big deal, I could live day by day even with this little minor issue, as long as my cochlear implant still works. I got used to hear again so not to hear but be a bit adjustment to me.
I respect everyone's choice. I have made one for myself. I want to hear but also enjoy silence many times.

Someone who doesn't hear is not much different than someone with hearing!

Cochlear Implant restrictions

Bummer ... :(

Ah, too bad those contests are always for the US and Canada only. There was another contest a while ago from Cochlear Americas and I was so eager to make a video, talked about my cochlear only later to hear I cannot participate :/

Never mind, I still enjoy their updates about the latest things going on with CIs :)

I hope tough one day they open up their "borders" a bit so people from outside the US can contribute.
